Residents Invited to PowerUp!

27-Sep-2018

Residents are invited to a hands-on discussion to help shape the city’s future in energy consumption.  

PowerUp Greater Sudbury is a community-wide planning project to create our city’s clean energy future.  The first event is being held on Thursday, October 4 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn, located at 1696 Regent St. in the Georgian B Room. 

The goal of the project is to explore energy opportunities as a community. It will create a vision for a local energy future that supports jobs and local economic development while improving quality of life and addressing climate change impacts.

Over the course of the 18-month project several subjects will be explored, including  where Greater Sudbury’s energy comes from and how it is used, in order to:

•    Be more energy efficient in our transportation and buildings
•    Take advantage of renewable energy opportunities
•    Make the right energy and community investments
•    Lower energy use expenses
•    Lower greenhouse gas emissions
•    Create jobs and improve the design of our city

PowerUp Greater Sudbury is managed through the City’s Environmental Planning Initiatives section, in partnership with Sustainability Solutions Group as the project consultant. The project is funded by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and the Province of Ontario.
