A brief description of on-site renewable non-electric energy devices:

Solar wall, about 200 metres square, to preheat ventilation air, located on the Mona Campbell Building. Also the LSC retrofit has solar thermal panel preheating. Dalhousie University has installed solar wall on the Mona Campbell building and 40 solar panels on Life Science Centre. Further installations are planned.

Solar panels approx. 72,000 kilowatt‐hours per year. = 246 MMBTU
Solar wall approx 69,600 kWh per year = 237 MMBTU
