City of Toronto taps into Enwave’s Deep Lake Water Cooling system
  
Deputy Mayor Joe Pantalone and Enwave Energy Corporation’s president and CEO Dennis Fotinos, will be at Metro Hall to turn on the cool air at the City of Toronto’s first municipal building to be cooled by Enwave’s Deep Lake Water Cooling system.

Date: Monday, July 24
Time: 11 a.m.
Location: Metro Hall Square, 55 John St. (south side, in front of Enwave hoarding)

As part of Enwave’s Deep Lake Water Cooling system that was commissioned in 2004, Metro Hall’s air conditioning system has been retrofitted so that the building is cooled using water from Lake Ontario. The Deep Lake Water Cooling system reduces energy use by 90 per cent, which in turn significantly reduces carbon dioxide emissions.

Enwave and City staff will be on hand to answer technical questions. Members of the media are also welcome to participate in a tour of Metro Hall to see how the Deep Lake Water Cooling system cools the building.
