Green Power Is a Hot Topic

Using Local, Geothermal Energy

The homes at Oxford Lane are plugged into the Alexandra Neighbourhood’s District Energy Utility System (ADEU) for a climate-friendly, comfortable way to regulate your home’s environment.

About District Energy

If you’re not already familiar with the concept of District Energy, you’ll be hearing a lot about it soon. The technology has existed for over a century, and for decades it has been used in progressive communities throughout BC. These systems are becoming more common now, because they offer a safe, reliable, and efficient way to deliver energy while creating fewer emissions.

Customized Comfort

The ADEU will supply the Oxford Lane homes with green energy for heating, cooling, and hot water. This renewable resource takes advantage of temperature differentials between the earth’s surface and subsurface. Through water-filled pipes underground, the ADEU extracts warm air during the chilly months and cool air when the weather gets warm again, so your house remains comfortable all the time.
