Green Energy
 
Conservation is a key part of our collective effort to lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and build a clean, reliable, modern energy system. It’s also Ontario’s most environmentally friendly and cost effective resource. The least expensive type of energy is the energy we don’t use.

Ontario’s Regulation for Public Agencies
A regulation came into force January 1, 2012 requiring public agencies to report their annual energy use and GHG emissions to the Ministry of Energy by July 1, 2013. In addition, public agencies were to develop five-year energy conservation and demand management (CDM) plans by July 1, 2014.

See Headwaters Health Care Centre's conservation and demand management plan. 
 
Public agencies must make their annual energy reports and five-year energy CDM plans publically available on their websites and in hard copy. For more information about the Ministry of Environment's regulation, please click HERE .
