Chemainus Village Square goes Green!

Chemainus Village Square, a brand new Shopping Centre in Chemainus,  is installing a Geothermal system; an emerging, alternative energy source.

The Earth stores energy, deep below the surface.

At Chemainus Village Square, workers are busy drilling 44 holes, 280 feet deep to harvest the warm, stable temperature of the earth. They’ll  install pipes and heat pumps to transfer the energy to heat and cool the buildings.

Geotility, Canada’s leading Geothermal Company is installing the system at Chemainus Village Square.

“Geothermal energy is very efficient and costs less than conventional energy sources,’ says John Kelly, of Chemainus Village Square and Geotility. “Shopping Centre tenants will benefit from lower common costs such as heating and cooling.”

“Geothermal units are quieter than traditional systems plus they’re self contained and chemical free,” adds Kelly.

“I’m excited about Geothermal because it doesn’t use fossil fuels or produce greenhouse gasses,” says Dee Kinnee, Chemainus Village Square. “In the long run, the use of Geothermal could cut back on natural resource extraction.”

I’m delighted that this is happening in my little town. “adds Kinnee

Drilling will carry on until the first week of July. During this time, walls, roofs and windows continue to appear as the shopping centre takes shape.

Chemainus Village is anchored by 49th Parallel Grocery, Island Savings Credit Union, Pharmasave and Village Liquor Store.  Opening is set for late summer 2013.
