October 5, 2022

(Toronto – October 5, 2022) – Today, Rocco Rossi, President and CEO, Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC), issued the following statement to mark Energy Efficiency Day:

“Ontario has reached an important stage in planning for future energy needs, with increased demand driven by economic growth and electrification. Energy efficiency is the success of our energy system, our environment and our economy.

“Strategies and policies designed to conserve electricity are important as the province enters a period of power failure. Conservation programs can help organizations by reducing input costs while achieving our collective environmental goals.

“We welcome the Ontario government’s announcement yesterday about taking steps to expand energy conservation programs that will help the province meet the growing demand for electricity. We encourage the Province to focus on measures that improve the predictability of climate policies and long-term energy procurement.

“OCC policy statement, Climate Catalyst: Ontario’s Leadership in the Global Green Economy and recent government submissions, Report on Canada’s Construction Strategy Discussion Paper, look for clean energy solutions to improve efficiency and lower costs.
