Did you know Lake Ontario cools downtown Toronto? Icy water (4ºC/39ºF) taken from the bottom of Lake Ontario is sent to the Toronto Island Water Filtration Plant to be purified and then forwarded to a heat transfer station.
The treated water is utilized to lower the temperature of water used for air conditioning in downtown buildings and afterwards it flows into the city’s drinking water pipes. The project, initiated by Enwave District Energy Ltd., presently cools over 20 buildings in downtown Toronto. The Lake Ontario project begins with three high-density polyethylene pipes, 5 kilometers (3.10 miles) long, that reach 83 meters (272 feet) down to the bottom of Lake Ontario to draw the icy water and send it to purification systems at the Toronto Island Water Filtration Plant.
Here the water is screened, pre-chlorinated, filtered, disinfected, fluoridated and post-chlorinated. It continues with the pumps at the heat exchange station, the butterfly valves that control the flow and volume of the water, and the MC Series variable frequency drives that operate those valves.
It is estimated that the project will save 59 megawatts of capacity to the province of Ontario, which can be translated into the electricity needed to power the air conditioning systems in 12,000 homes. It has also been estimated that air pollution reduction from the system will be the equivalent of taking 4,000 to 8,000 cars a year off the road. Now that's cool.
