Oakville's Community Energy Plan

At a special Council meeting on February 25, Council made an historic leap forward in taking action on climate change by unanimously endorsing the Oakville Energy Task Force’s Community Energy Plan (CEP) and its strategy and priority projects. 

In June 2019, Council unanimously declared a climate emergency. The CEP directly supports the declaration by providing clear and achievable targets to significantly lower community greenhouse gas emissions and improve our overall energy efficiency.

Oakville's Energy Task Force was formed in 2018 and comprises a team of 19 community leaders from local businesses, government, utilities, schools and community groups to advise and champion the development and implementation of the plan.
