Re: City of Kelowna wants LEED buildings on the old KSS site.

The B.C. Sustainable Energy Association, Okanagan Chapter, commends the City of Kelowna for its recent decision that the new buildings constructed on the old KSS site (near the corner of Richter and Hwy 97) will be built to a LEED gold standard.

The BCSEA recognizes that higher quality buildings are a very important part of our future and that we must raise our requirements for all new buildings and substantial renovations to reduce water and energy use and make these buildings more pleasant and healthy for their occupants.

John C. Suttie, chairman,

Okanagan Chapter,

B.C. Sustainable Energy Association
