How to Build an Urban Velo Project
Posted On June 6, 2021
In December 2016, Toronto’s new Urban Velos program was announced to bring together local groups, local governments, and developers to design and build a new urban hydro project.
Urban Veloses goal is to build a network of new, low-cost urban hydro projects across the city by 2027, using a combination of hydro power and solar.
The project will involve the construction of a new hydropower station, and the installation of hydro systems at more than 200 sites across the Greater Toronto Area, which will allow residents to enjoy the benefits of urban hydro while avoiding the impacts of climate change.
The program is also looking at ways to provide the city with more affordable energy for its residents, such as offering solar panels to residential customers.
