We're spending a lot on energy...

We spent 2.1 Billion dollars on energy in 2014. 1.8 billion dollars of that left our community buying 99.9% of the energy we use. This is a big hole in our local economic bucket.

AND WE'RE WASTING 45% OF IT

This graph may take a minute to get used to but it’s revealing.

OUR GOALS, OUR PURPOSE

To improve and sustain Waterloo Region’s economic competitiveness and quality of life through the coordination of targeted energy investments.
