A Promising Retrofit Project for YCC
Our team in the West Kootenay just started the Residential Energy Efficiency Works (REnEW) project in Nelson! After a few days of in-class certification and learning, the crew is ready to update insulation, replace windows and improve the air sealing of a long-term care home operated by the Kootenay Society for Community Living. This project will make the building more comfortable, reduce energy costs for society, and reduce carbon emissions from heating and cooling.
Building retrofits are needed in most communities across Canada to meet our emissions reduction goals, and Youth Climate Corps will be there to work with communities to get the work done and train a climate workforce. This project is being documented, and we will be excited to share the story and experience.
