The Green Energy Act was introduced into Ontario legislature in 2009 to encourage energy conservation, renewable energy production, and to promote a green economy. This Act, regulation 397, requires the broader public sector hospitals to report their annual energy consumption to the Ministry of Energy each year, beginning July 1, 2013.

Effective July 1, 2014, SJHCG is required to submit an energy conservation and demand management plan outlining how we will reduce our energy consumption. In addition to reporting to the Ministry, we post our plan on our website and intranet page. A hard copy of the plan is also available in the President’s office.

What we are working on right now, and what we will be introducing in the coming years as part of our corporate green commitment, is outlined below in our Conservation & Demand Plan.
