From 2015-2018, TAF partnered with Toronto Community Housing to undertake energy efficiency retrofits in seven buildings on three sites. This case study looks at one of those sites, Trethewey Tedder Apartments, comprised of two 1970s-era highrise buildings with a joint total of 369 apartments.
This work demonstrated that retrofits can provide a compelling return on investment while enhancing resident comfort, reducing environmental impacts, and generating green jobs. With this retrofit we:
- Beat our carbon emissions reduction projections
- Secured higher-than-projected utility cost savings
- Improved comfort for residents by reducing overheating and increasing fresh air
