The new Vancouver Fire Hall No. 17 will offer a 99.67% reduction in operational carbon emissions compared to the existing structure. The solar photovoltaic array, provided by Hakai, provides this all-electric post-disaster fire hall with its total energy requirements on an annual basis. The Vancouver Fire Hall No. 17 is the first fire hall in Canada to earn the Zero Carbon Building (ZCB) design certification, and the first project to be certified in BC.
