Over the next 16 months, the City of Kingston will work with community leaders, citizens and key stakeholders in the Kingston economic and energy sectors to develop Kingston's first Community Energy Plan.
What is a community energy plan?
A community energy plan is a local economic development instrument in the context of energy costs, energy services, energy generation, consumption, innovative service delivery.
The Kingston community energy plan will consider long-term energy generation, consumption, infrastructure, economic growth and land-use planning – and will look at energy use in all sectors of our community: residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, municipal and transportation.
The final Kingston Community Energy Plan may include recommendations for capital projects, timelines and commitments to integrate smart energy recommendations into other relevant municipal planning instruments such as the Official Plan, strategic plans, community economic strategies and smart growth plans.
