Providence Featured in Manitoba Hydro Commercials

Manitoba Hydro, Global-TV and CBC TV Manitoba have partnered together to produce and air a profile on Providence University College & Theological Seminary as Providence has employed energy and environmental initiatives in their day to day practices. To this end, Providence has established energy management and conservation strategies to achieve proven energy and non-energy benefits.

Manitoba Hydro is airing three separate commercials featuring different aspects of energy savings through our Biomass heating, our geothermal heating/cooling as well as many other general energy saving initiatives implemented on campus. Did you know that Providence reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 302 tonnes per year, just by using the biomass heating? This could be equivalent to the gas emissions from 63 passenger vehicles or the carbon sequestered by 7,744 tree seedlings grown for 10 years. 

Below is one of the spots Manitoba Hydro will be airing, regarding our Biomass heating system. The three commercials featuring Providence are airing on CBC-TV Manitoba till mid-December, and then flipping to Global-TV from January to mid-March.
