Town Awarded for Energy Efficient Actions at Mayors’ Megawatt Challenge Forum 2020

HALTON HILLS, ON The Town received multiple accolades at the 2020 Mayors’ Megawatt Challenge Forum for its leadership role in energy consumption and mitigating climate change.


In addition to induction into the “10 Percent Club” for its positive contribution to the community’s health and well-being by lowering energy use by 10% (since 2018) at the Fire Station District 1, the Town received three additional leadership awards for high performance in buildings that have met or surpassed their total energy targets. The three buildings are Town Hall, Acton Arena & Community Centre and Cedarvale Community Centre.


The awards not only recognize the Town’s ongoing efforts to reduce operational energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, they align with the goals and climate change targets outlined in the Corporate Energy Management plan.


“Fostering a healthy community and a superior quality of life in Halton Hills includes providing a clean environment,” said Halton Hills Mayor Rick Bonnette. “The Mayors’ Megawatt Challenge awards recognize our leadership by example and illustrate the positive progress we’re making with our climate change initiatives.”


The Mayors’ Megawatt Challenge (MMC) is a network of municipalities that features events, benchmarking and assessment reports, on-going energy and water reporting, analytical tools, and awards and recognition. Its mandate is to bring municipalities together to improve energy efficiency and environmental performance in their own buildings and contribute more broadly to mitigating climate change and making their communities more sustainable.
