Update: Wahnapitae’s Community Energy Plan

As you may remember Wahnapitae is working to create a Community Energy Plan. Several of your neighbours have contributed their energy (electricity, fuel oil and propane) billing information to Marilyn. This, along with information gathered from Hydro One (electricity provider) is being used to create a community energy baseline. The baseline determines how much energy the community used from 2013 to present. This information will help us to compare the community’s energy use to the energy use in surrounding communities. As we move forward, this information can be used to measure the success of installing energy conservation measures or renewable energy projects by measuring the change in annual energy use.
