City seeks neighbourhood partners for Neighbourhood Energy Efficiency Project

The City of Toronto is seeking organizations to help mobilize low-carbon neighbourhoods through a new Neighbourhood Energy Efficiency Project. The project, which supports the neighbourhood acceleration campaigns approved by City Council through the TransformTO Climate Action Strategy, is funded through the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change’s Partners in Climate Action program.

Interested community / neighbourhood organizations are invited to submit an Expression of Interest by February 21, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. EST.  A copy of the Call for EOI is attached. A webinar for groups interested in learning more about the project will take place on
February 12 (see details, below).

We would appreciate your assistance in communicating this information to community organizations and others in your network.

About the Neighbourhood Energy Efficiency Project 

With the aim of reducing residential energy consumption in three or more Toronto neighbourhoods, the project will test various methods to motivate uptake in energy efficiency incentives.

Three to five neighbourhood partners will be selected to engage with single-family households in an area of their choice, and implement a plan which they will develop in conjunction with City staff. As part of the program, residents will have access to rooftop thermal imagery illustrating their home’s heat loss through an online engagement platform that will also offer information about available energy efficiency programs and incentives.

Organizations interested in responding to the Call for Expressions of Interest and learning more about the project are encouraged to sign up for this informative webinar.
