5 Year Energy Conservation Plan (2019-2023)

The City of Mississauga has developed and implemented Energy Conservation Plans successfully since 2001. This new 5 Year Energy Conservation Plan is the latest plan which builds on the successes of the previous plans. The plan not only meets the requirements under the Ontario Regulation 507/18 of the Electricity Act, but it also showcases the City’s leadership in doing its part to improve energy performance and fighting climate change in City-owned facilities. Under this plan, the City will be following the principles of ISO 50001 and its Plan-Do-Check-Act continual improvement framework, and have targeted a 1% reduction in energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions each year over the energy consumption of 2018.


While implementing its old plan over the 2014-2018 period, the City has already achieved incredible results:

  • Energy Use Intensity and GHG emissions dropped by 9.3% and 8.1% respectively
  • A total utility costs of $1,306,550 were avoided
  • A total incentives of $1,199,505 were received from utilities as a result of savings achieved from projects and initiatives
  • Received numerous awards in the industry, including:
    • Living City Energy Efficiency award for Mississauga City Hall for three years in a row (2016, 2017, 2018)
    • Best Municipality/University/School/Hospital (MUSH) 1MW+ Customer award
    • 2015 Town Hall Challenge award for Mississauga City Hall
    • ENERGY STAR ® certification for Mississauga City Hall for 2018
