Those of you affected for the past 5 summers by the noise from the Regent Park Community Energy Centre will be interested to know that there has been an update from TCH on August 19th. They confirmed in an email that the solution needed to resolve this issue, is to install silencers on the cooling towers, and that Ameresco (a consultant working with them) is still investigating how to put these silencers on the roof and how to install them. Their report is expected to be completed by the end of August and then submitted to the Ministry of Energy which appears to be a requirement. The exact length of time necessary to get MOE approval, and to install the silencers is not known but they “hope” to have the silencers in place before the summer of 2015.
