The town is in the Red-Control level under the new provincial COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open. Provincial orders remain in effect and we must all follow public health guidelines.
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.
All of the town's annual energy use data can be downloaded from the Open Data Catalogue in a CSV file format.
Hardcopies of the energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions data are available at Town Hall (1225 Trafalgar Road).
