Region of Peel joins Certification in Energy Excellence Program

Burlington, Jan.3, 2008: The Regional Municipality of Peel was incorporated in 1974 on the principle that certain community and infrastructure services are most costeffectively administered over a larger geographic area. The Region of Peel serves more than one million residents in the cities of Mississauga and Brampton and the Town of Caledon.

In keeping with their mandate, the Region of Peel has become a leading organization in Energy Management over the last few years, always looking to the next level of improvement whenever possible. They have a (CEM) Corporate Energy Management team, who work to ensure everything possible is being done in the areas of conservation and sustainability.

The Region is pleased to announce they are the first municipality in Canada to enroll in the Certification in Energy Excellence program, a newly developed program by 360 Energy Inc. in Burlington. In speaking to David Arkell, President and CEO of 360 Energy Inc. he said “The Certification in Energy Excellence is not something easily attained, nor is it a self assessment. It requires proper attention to the management of energy, evidence of progressive improvement in standards and a commitment to make further progress. We are extremely pleased that the Region of Peel has begun the certification process and look forward to working with them in 2008.”

Steve Hall, Director of Corporate Energy at the Region of Peel stated, “the Certification in Energy Excellence program allows Peel Region to celebrate key milestones in its energy management program. For many years, the Region has consistently demonstrated its commitment to making informed decisions about how energy is purchased, consumed and managed; the Certification in Energy Excellence now allows us to demonstrate that we have a common understanding and approach to energy management practices that are among the best in the world. This certification program goes beyond representing our progress in energy reductions, but will also help strategically outline what Peel Region is planning to do over time to ensure these reductions continue.”
