The Municipality of Clarington is committed to protecting our environment. As our community grows we want to make sure that we minimize our environmental footprint. To that end, we have created Priority Green Clarington, an initiative to promote a healthy, liveable and sustainable community.
The Municipality is also working to conserve energy in our buildings and facilities. Our Energy Conservation Committee is constantly looking at ways to improve energy efficiency. We hope that by leading the way we will all make conscious decisions to protect our environment.
Building on our corporate energy management initiatives, Clarington has partnered with the Region of Durham, all seven area municipalities, and the five local utilities to prepare a Durham Community Energy Plan (CEP). The Durham CEP will be an action-oriented plan that defines community energy priorities on a long-term basis. Its success will require input from residents and businesses, as well as the establishment of partnerships and a strong commitment to investing in smart energy solutions for our collective future. The Durham CEP presents an important opportunity to plan for future growth and economic development within the Region. The Durham CEP will aim to improve energy use and efficiency while attempting to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These are all concrete actions that will assist in mitigating climate change. Visit the Durham Community Energy Plan website for more information and to learn about upcoming information and consultation opportunities.
