This document constitutes the Municipal Energy Conservation Template prepared by the Energy Conservation Task Force of the AMO and adopted by the AMO Board of Directors for use by member municipalities.
The Template employs a flexible approach that could be used by municipalities in meeting the requirements of the Bill 21, the Energy Conservation and Leadership Act, 2006 (ECLA). The ECLA requires the creation of Energy Plans in provincial ministries and wider public sector organizations. While regulations requiring the creation of energy conservation plans by municipalities have not yet been filed, section four of the ECLA provides:

The Lieutenant Governor in Council may, by regulation, require public agencies to prepare an annual energy conservation plan or, if the regulations so provide, an energy conservation plan respecting such other period as may be prescribed. 2006, c. 3, Sched. A, s. 4 (1).
