Community Energy Planning

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.
