The Premier of Ontario has declared a province-wide state of emergency and issued a stay-at-home order in response to rising COVID-19 variant infection rates.
Oakville's Energy Task Force was formed in 2018 and comprises a team of community leaders from local businesses, government, utilities, schools and community groups to advise and champion a community energy planning and implementation process for Oakville.
At a special Council meeting on February 25 2020, Council made an historic leap forward in taking action on climate change by unanimously endorsing the Oakville Energy Task Force’s Community Energy Strategy (pdf).
The Strategy directly supports Council’s climate emergency declaration by providing clear and achievable goals to significantly lower community greenhouse gas emissions and improve our overall energy efficiency while strengthening the local economy.
Council received an update on the Community Energy Strategy at the April 26, 2021 Council meeting, outlining some of the key energy projects being completed by the town. Review the news release.
Community energy planning and implementation helps the town, residents and businesses work together to reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions while strengthening the local economy and building an affordable and reliable energy future.
The ultimate goal is to help us as a community:
Total of $620 million!
At least $500 million leaves our community.
