With funding support from the Ontario government through the Municipal Energy Plan (MEP) Program of the Ministry of Energy, in 2016, the Municipality of Wawa completed the Wawa Energy Plan (WEP) in partnership with Algoma Power Inc. (API), the Economic Development Corporation of Wawa (EDC) and a myriad of community stakeholders. The Plan was identified as a priority in the Wawa Strategic Plan (2010) and the Wawa Municipal Business Plan (2015).
The Wawa Energy Action Plan outlines short, medium and long-term energy goals, objectives and recommended priority actions for implementation. Through community education and energy savings programs provided by the Municipality of Wawa and its partners, Wawa will decrease its energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.
The EDC in partnership with the Municipality and Algoma Power received funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) in April 2016 to implement energy, water and waste reduction programs. The OTF project is a collaborative initiative of the EDC of Wawa, the Municipality of Wawa and Algoma Power Inc.
The Wawa Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan provides information on how the Municipality of Wawa will conserve energy. It outlines:
- Renewable Energy opportunities
- Estimated costs and benefits
- Conservation goals and objectives
- Proposed conservation measures
