The article reports on the ultraefficient chiller plant in Canada, located at Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning in Toronto, Ontario. The commitment of the college to reduce electricity consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and carbon dioxide emissions were considered during the planning of the chiller plant. The plant uses prefabricated pump stations.
