Today we retrofitted our old Victorian mansion at 33 Bennoch Road to be more energy efficient. We started by replacing all of the incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs in the building with highly efficient 5 watt LED bulbs. This reduced our maximum energy consumption for lighting from 1283 watts/hour to 466 watts/hour, which is a 64% improvement! Then we replaced most of the plumbing fixtures in the building with more efficient models, reducing water usage from 28 gallons/minute to 16 gallons/minute, which is a 43% improvement!
As always, these operational efficiencies benefit the environment and position us to provide our tenants with the lowest rents we can offer.
