“Beaconsfield is the only city in Québec to make the short list for the QUEST pilot project,” said Georges Bourelle.
The mayor of Beaconsfield was talking about a new energy efficiency program entitled the Smart Energy Communities Scorecard in association with two NGOs, QUEST and Pollution Probe.
The program involves eight other communities from across the country and the goal of the new program is to see how said communities can seek more energy efficient practices.
“We are proud to collaborate with innovative communities across Canada, which will serve to motivate our residents to join us in the efforts to become a more sustainable, self-sufficient, and resilient community in the face of climate change,” said Bourelle.
Other communities taking part include cities and towns in Calgary, London and Yellowknife. By the end of the trial period, the city will be issued a report card noting its efforts to reduce the use of energy within city limits.
