Green Energy


New Reporting Requirements under the Green Energy Act
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. In addition, public agencies will need to 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    PIcture of Energy conservation logo
• assist in setting goals by providing a benchmark
• measure improvement over time.

Energy conservation and demand management (CDM) plan contains information on how the Township will conserve energy, and will include the Township’s energy consumption and GHG emissions report. The plan must be updated every five years beginning in 2019.

The Energy conservation and demand management will outline:
• conservation goals and objectives
• proposed conservation measures
• estimated costs and benefits
• any renewable energy installations.
