Energy Management & Planning

Conservation is a key part of the Province’s effort to lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and build a clean, reliable, modern energy system. As a result, public agencies are now required to:
•    Report their annual energy use and GHG emissions to the Ministry of Energy as of July 1, 2013
•    Develop five-year energy conservation and demand management (CDM) plans by July 1, 2014

Energy reporting and conservation planning will help the Township:
•    manage electricity use and costs;
•    identify best practices and energy-saving opportunities;
•    evaluate results by comparing to similar facilities across the province;
•    assist in setting goals by providing a benchmark; and
•    measure improvement over time

The Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan will outline:
•    conservation goals and objectives;
•    proposed conservation measures;
•    estimated costs and benefits; and
•    any renewable energy installations

Energy Conservation & Demand Management Plans

Regulation 397/11 requires public agencies to prepare, publish, make available to the public and implement energy conservation and demand management plans.
