Reminder: first Community Energy Café is tomorrow at Tett Centre
June 22, 2015 -
The City of Kingston reminds you it wants your help developing our first community energy plan.
How do you think can we change the way we plan our community to reduce energy costs and carbon emissions? How can we reduce energy spending for more local investments? Come to Kingston's first Community Energy Café at the Tett Centre at 6:30 p.m. on June 23 to get involved in building a community energy plan aimed at building a smart local economy, reducing energy costs and reducing carbon emissions.
Our community spends over 600 million every year to run our homes, workplaces and transportation systems. Most of that expense leaves our community. Over the next 16 months, the City and the community will together with key stakeholders like the Kingston Economic Development Corporation, our local utility providers, SWITCH Ontario and the Chamber of Commerce to develop a community energy plan.
Learn more about the community energy plan at www.CityofKingston.ca/CommunityEnergy.
