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.
The Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan is the framework for energy management within the town operations.
The plan was developed in consultation with key departments: Facilities & Construction Management, Recreation and Culture, Roads and Works, Sustainability & Government Relations and Finance among others, in order to integrate energy management across the entire corporation.
Goal 1: 20 per cent reduction in overall energy consumption by 2024 based on 2014 baseline
Goal 2: 30 per cent reduction in GHG Emissions by 2024 based on 2014 baseline
In accordance with provincial regulation O.Reg. 507/18 under the Electricity Act 1998, all public agencies including municipalities must report annual energy use at their facilities. Municipalities are also required to provide an updated Conservation and Demand Management Plan every five years, with the most recent update happening in 2019.
Hardcopies of the energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions data are available at Town Hall (1225 Trafalgar Road).
