The City of Mississauga was recently recognized by Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA)
for being in the top 15 most energy efficient town and city halls in Canada.
"The City of Mississauga's Civic Centre uses many energy conservation measures and we
are proud of our energy conservation programs and encourage others to take action," said
Rajan Balchandani, manager, energy management. "Each year we review our processes and
equipment for new efficiencies."
Mississauga's Civic Centre was number 14 on the TRCA list, out of 60 municipalities from
every region of Canada who submitted the utility data on their town halls. The top 15
performers were ranked and municipalities received a report on how their town hall performed,
including its energy intensity per square foot. TRCA provided participating municipalities with
data showing potential savings from achieving a target of 20 ekWh per sq. ft.
As Canada's sixth largest city, Mississauga is home to 734,000 residents and 55,000
businesses, including 63 Fortune 500 companies with Canadian head offices or major divisional
head offices. A diverse, progressive and award-winning municipality located on the shores of
Lake Ontario in the heart of the Greater Toronto Area, Mississauga is "Leading Today for
Tomorrow" by focussing on delivering services, implementing its Strategic Plan, delivering
value for money, maintaining infrastructure and continuing to be an employer of choice.
