Mississauga amongst top 15 Canada wide for energy efficiency

Dec 22, 2011

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.
