Energy Management Plan

The City of St. Catharines' Energy Management Plan was approved by City Council on June 23, 2014.

The Energy Management Plan is design to:

  • Commit the necessary resources to develop and implement a strategic
    energy management plan that will reduce our energy consumption
    and its related environmental impact.
  • Recognize our stewardship responsibilities in our use of finite energy
    resources and to demonstrate leadership, optimize our delivery of services, and enhance the overall quality of life in our community.
  • Provide for ongoing energy monitoring and targeting of utility usage.
  • Address legislated reporting requirements under the Green Energy Act
    O.Reg. 397/11.
  • Establish Facility operational guidelines and define equipment standards
    for City staff to follow.
  • Set 5 year energy reduction targets.
  • Recognize recent energy reduction

Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan update

The City's Energy Management Plan  was designed to meet the requirements of Ontario Regulation 507/18 under the Electricity Act (1998). This regulation requires public agencies develop a five-year plan, and update it every five years.

The City’s current Energy Management Plan was produced in 2014 to satisfy its obligations under a previous regulation (O. Reg. 397/11) , and as such, has developed a draft Energy Conservation and Management Plan to continue to move towards it’s energy conservation goals.
