Conservation Demand Management Plan

The Province of Ontario has developed the Green Energy Act (GEA) as "a mechanism to expand renewable energy generation, encourage energy conservation and promote the creation of clean energy jobs" (Ministry of Energy, 2012). A new regulation under the GEA will require public agencies, including municipalities to:

  • Report annually on energy use and GHG emissions beginning July 1, 2013 and post that information online; and,
  • Develop five-year energy conservation plans starting July 1, 2014, and post those plans online.

By completing a baseline of energy use (Section II) and the associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as well as developing a plan for implementation (Section III) the Town of Amherstburg is setting the stage to comply with Provincial regulations well in advance of the reporting deadlines.
