The Saanich's Environmental Advisory Committee recognizes people and organizations that made a positive contribution to the natural environment in Saanich each year.
City Green was awarded the 2010 Business Environmental Award for helping Saanich residents improve the energy efficiency of their homes, including assisting more than 1300 homeowners in the District of Saanich access home energy efficiency assessments and rebates for their upgrades.
As the lead in this Energy Savings Plan, City Green helped to create a one stop shop website where people can search for energy efficiency related grants available throughout B.C. People can search based on their location, building type or type of renovation.
The ESP website is a legacy of the ESP pilot project that ran from March 2006 to 2007. As lead in this project, City Green partnered with municipalities and community energy planners to link owners of low-income housing projects, multi-unit residential buildings, property owners, and homeowners, to provincial grants for energy efficiency building upgrades.
City Green - and all our partners in this innovative partnership among industry, governments, utilities, First Nations and others - became a finalist in the Premiers Innovation and Excellence Award. The ESP program promoted energy efficiency as a way to reduce consumer energy costs and lower greenhouse gas emissions from the residential sector.
The CRD voted City Green the winner of the Climate Change award for our work with the Energy Savings Plan program. This award was sponsored by Golder Ecofys Solutions.
