Thank you, Mr. Albrecht.
Michael and Tracey, I haven't had the benefit of your presentations. I'm only picking up on some of the questions that have been asked, but Michael, I'm going to start with you.
We've all experienced our own engagement in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in our footprint. I have 41 panels on a building in a FIT program and the return is great. I argue with those around me from time to time who think that I'm getting a real deal, but I remind them that I paid for the infrastructure. That's what taxpayers don't understand, that the people who put panels on their houses pay for the infrastructure and that relieves the taxpayer of the cost for that infrastructure and the maintenance of it. But my own personal experience is fantastic.
There's a company in Guelph called Skyline, a real estate investment trust, which owns well over $1 billion in property across Canada. When they buy an apartment building they immediately change the light bulbs, the toilets, the appliances. They drive the cost of utilities down. When you have a greater net income that's capitalized, of course the value of your buildings goes up tremendously. The value of their buildings has gone up by millions of dollars just by the application of what you spoke of, the business model.
I'm asking you specifically. You're near Guelph, and you've probably heard of the community energy plan, which morphed into the district energy plan. I don't know if you talked about that today, but could you tell us about the district energy plan, rather than having me tell us about it, and what it's accomplishing?
