While this is true (tdsb.on.ca/Community/How-…) it is important to note that this work was completed before the break - this work related specifically to Covid-19 precautions -@tdsb spends millions on mechanical system upgrades as part of our school renewal program... 1/5
... and those upgrades include replacing existing mechanical ventilation components and building automation systems... but replacement of mechanical system upgrades takes months to plan and implement and funding... 2/5
... in the last FBEC there were two reports - facility contract awards notes that although we have spent $12M on mechanical upgrades in 20-21 so far, there remains a renewal backlog in mechanical of over $1.4B (tdsb.on.ca/Leadership/Boa…)... 3/5
... there are examples of costs in another FBEC report Climate Action Incentive Fund (CAIF) federal funding to support energy efficient improvements and retrofits to schools in Ontario to reduce energy consumption, utility costs and carbon pollution (tdsb.on.ca/Leadership/Boa…) 4/5
... for example you can see in Appendix D we submitted $14.6M of eligible completed projects but fund is only cost matching up to $3.8M - boiler plant replacements are each over $300K while replacing heating plants over $4.5M - mechanical system replacements take time & money 5/5
