Thanks to funding from the Alberta Real Estate Foundation, the newly constructed Melcor YMCA Village will include Co-gen, a vital energy efficiency component. Situated in the core of Edmonton’s Boyle Street Community, the Melcor YMCA Village – Affordable Housing Facility will be home to more than 150 low-income families, couples, and individuals, including people with limited mobility.
The Co-gen project will help ease the financial burden that many Melcor tenants face by reducing heating costs through the energy converting technology. For many low-income individuals, times arise when they need to choose between paying their rent and paying for groceries. These individuals are at times one pay check away from losing their homes. Co-gen not only has environmental benefits but will help the residents stay housed by keeping their housing affordable.
On behalf of the YMCA of Edmonton, we would like to thank you for all of your support.
