Energy Management Committee
The City’s Energy Management Committee (EMC) was formed in February 2007. The purpose of the EMC is to oversee the improvement of energy performance, energy costs and environmental impact of city buildings, fleet and infrastructure. The Committee will specifically focus on ways to improve energy efficiency while reducing greenhouse gas emissions related to electrical and fossil fuel consumption and will also explore opportunities around incorporating alternative energy sources, such as geothermal and solar, into projects.
The Committee was instrumental in creating a Memorandum of Agreement that allows BC Hydro to offer the full complement of its Power Smart programs to the City’s electricity customers. City citizens can take advantage of energy conservation and increased energy savings, both at home and the office. Check out the incentives that the Power Smart Program offers.
