Energy Conservation

The Municipality of Middlesex Centre has many goals and objectives for conserving and otherwise reducing energy consumption and managing our demand for energy. We are driven to improve the energy efficiency of our buildings and operations due to rising fuel costs, energy security and environmental concerns. We have developed a plan to reduce energy consumption by 5 percent by the year 2019 using 2012 energy consumption data as a baseline (see data below).

To learn more, view the following documents outlining our energy conservation efforts:

2012 Energy Consumption and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Report (PDF)

2011 Energy Consumption and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Report (PDF)

*Please note that these documents have been added in DRAFT form in order to comply with the July 1, 2014 deadline for making these documents available to the public. The Energy Conservation & Demand Management Plan will be brought forward to Middlesex Centre Council for review and approval at the July 23rd Council meeting.

Ontario Regulation 397/11

Ontario Regulation 397/11 made under the Green Energy Act, 2009, requires every public agency to prepare, publish and make available to the public, and implement energy conservation and demand management plans.  A summary of the public agency’s annual energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions for its operations must also be prepared and made available to the public. Also required is a description of previous, current and proposed measures for conserving and otherwise reducing the amount of energy consumed by the public agency’s operation and for managing the public agency’s demand for energy, including a forecast of the expected results of current and proposed measures.

The Municipality of Middlesex Centre is prescribed as a public agency and therefore is required to record the annual energy consumption in our facilities. As well, the Municipality has produced this report stating our goals for conserving and reducing energy, proposed energy conservation measures including estimated costs and savings, and a description of renewable energy generation facilities and the amount of energy produced.
