The Ontario Power Authority (OPA) is pleased to provide the 2011 Conservation Results Report.
|2011 Conservation Results Report|
This report provides insight into 2011 conservation programs and information on new innovative projects and technologies supported through the Conservation Fund.
From 2006 to 2011, conservation programs have seen an investment of $2 billion and have saved customers $4 billion in avoided costs. Overall, 2011 conservation programs in Ontario influenced 717 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of verified and sustainable annual energy savings, yielding a program cost to consumers of 3 cents per kWh. This was the most cost-effective year to date.
Ontario continues to be a North American energy conservation leader. Ontario’s conservation efforts are helping families and businesses across the province become more active in reducing their energy consumption. Ontarians have conserved more than 1,900 megawatts of electricity since 2005, the equivalent of removing over 600,000 homes from the grid.
Our conservation results demonstrate how the OPA’s conservation team and its partners, including all local electric utilities, are innovating for the future and are providing value to customers and the province. The results have also helped inform our suite of saveONenergy programs, which help customers better manage their energy consumption.
