Humber receives $1M to switch to electric heating system


Humber College has received $1M from the Government of Canada to make the heating system at its Etobicoke campus greener through the SWITCH project. The investment will see Humber switching to an electric heating system which is expected to reduce the campus’ reliance on natural gas by 70%. The system is designed so that it can be expanded to other campus buildings in the future. “This support from the federal government will bring us closer to achieving our ambitious vision with the SWITCH project,” said Humber President Ann Marie Vaughan. “As it becomes fully operational, it will set the stage for Humber’s future sustainability initiatives such as achieving net zero by 2050.” | Humber
