The City has mandated the installation of renewable energy systems on all City buildings, where feasible, by 2020. Over the past 20 years, more than 50 renewable energy systems have been installed on City buildings and properties.

Renewable Energy Policy for City Buildings

In 2013, City Council adopted a requirement for all new City-owned buildings to generate at least five per cent of the energy used from renewable technologies.¬†Using solar photovoltaic, solar thermal, geothermal, and biomass, supports the City’s environmental, energy security, and economic goals.
