Town of Newmarket / 31 July 2019

A Community Energy Plan (CEP) provides the Newmarket community with a roadmap to move towards a sustainable energy system. The CEP provides Newmarket with a vision for sustainable energy that allows the community to manage energy resources and use while contributing to economic development. It also provides a platform to demonstrate leadership in energy management at the community level, and positions Newmarket to respond to changes in legislation relating to climate change, cap and trade, as well as capitalize on funding opportunities for progressive energy planning in the future.

Energy planning can help Newmarket consider the environmental and economic benefits of how energy is consumed and generated in the community, in addition to considering how this impacts the overall quality of life of its residents.
