Solar Compactor Retrofit

Projects Description

This project is a small retrofit to one of the solar compaction systems at the Township of Whitestone’s busiest depots to address wintertime battery draw down issues. If successful, it will reduce generator operating costs and provide information of value to similar systems across Ontario. The cost of the project will be approximately $10,000 and is expected to have a payback of approximately 5 years. The CIF will contribute up to half the costs in light of the potential province wide benefits.
