Is There a Greener Way to Heat and Cool Your Downtown Mississauga Neighbourhood?

Environment | November 9, 2021

The City is inviting residents to come out (virtually) and learn about a potential opportunity – district energy for Downtown Mississauga.

Online Public Meeting Details

What:
Two online public meetings to discuss bringing district energy and providing residents with the opportunity to learn more, ask questions and provide feedback.

District energy is an efficient system for heating and cooling buildings. Hot and cold water are produced at a central facility and then transferred to individual buildings through a network of pipes. This avoids the need for boilers and chillers in each building. District energy has many benefits, including decreased greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, increased resilience and job creation.  

Who:

  • Mississauga residents/business owners; especially those who live and work in Downtown Mississauga
  • Ratepayers groups
  • Anyone who works, plays or lives in Mississauga 

When:
Tuesday, November 23, 2021

  • 1 to 2:30 p.m.
  • 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Why:
One of the actions in the City’s Climate Change Action Plan is to look at the feasibility of building a district energy system in Downtown Mississauga – an action that would help the City achieve its ambitious target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 40 per cent by 2030 and 80 per cent by 2050.

Where:
Registration is required either online or by calling 311 (for those who do not have computer access). Registered participants will receive meeting instructions.
