New $4.21 million net-zero administration building in Yarmouth County nearing completion
March 24, 2021 — The Chronicle Herald takes a look at Argyle’s new administrative building, which will be the first net-zero municipal building in Canada when it comes to energy costs. It is hoped municipal employees can move into the building by June. A grand opening will be scheduled in September.
Once fully operational, the south-facing solar garden on the east side of the Municipality of Argyle’s new $4.21-million administration building should produce about 10 to 15 per cent more energy than the building will consume. That translates to $27,000 in annual energy cost savings. Over 30 years, including inflation, the operating cost savings for taxpayers could amount to $3.2 million.
