Energy Consumption & Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reports

In 2011, Ontario’s Ministry of Energy introduced Regulation 397/11 under the Green Energy Act, 2009 which requires public agencies to report their 2012 energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by July 1, 2014 and subsequent years annually thereafter.

The regulation is intended to help public agencies increase their awareness of how their buildings and facilities use energy and requires that they develop a plan to reduce energy consumption. As per the regulation the Town has completed and adopted a 5 year Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan (CDM) for implementation. The Town refers to our plan as the "Green Facility Formula". 

The Province will benefit from a better understanding of public agency energy use which in turn will assist in the improvement of policy and program development in the areas of energy conservation and GHG emissions.

East Gwillimbury is committed to reducing its energy consumption and associated GHG emissions for municipal operations.  A copy of the 2012 and 2013 Energy Consumption and GHG Emissions Report in addition to the 5 Year Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan (the Town’s Green Facility Formula) can be found at the links below.  Hard copies of these documents are also available through Customer Service at 19000 Leslie Street in Sharon.
