Conservation and Demand Management
Did you know that the treatment and distribution of water and wastewater is the single largest energy user in most municipalities?
The Town of Collingwood spends $1,204,861.62 per year on energy costs at 12 building and facilities, related to the treatment or pumping of water or sewage. 10,375,236.97 kWh of energy is used per year, which results in 11391235.18 kilograms of greenhouse gases.
We are pleased to share our Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan for the 2014 through to 2019 period, which has been prepared as per Ontario Regulation 397/11. This regulation requires that all municipalities report on energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions annually, beginning in 2011. Municipalities were also required to prepare energy conservation and demand plans beginning in 2014.
