As part of the City of Toronto’s TransformTO - Net Zero Strategy, residents and community leaders are invited to participate in this program which sets an ambitious target to reduce community-wide greenhouse gas emissions in Toronto to net zero by 2040.
Participants will receive training in how to develop climate action projects that reduce greenhouse gases, and support to empower them to work with residents, in areas that reflect the needs and values of their community.
Applications will be accepted until 11:59 pm on November 22. Apply here.
Your input will help boost Toronto’s on-street EV charging
Have you filled in the survey yet? Many residents want to drive an electric vehicle (EV), but if you don’t have a garage or driveway to charge, you may be out of luck. TAF is surveying Toronto residents to learn where and how quickly EV chargers are required in the community. We need your participation to inform City Councillors and staff. Complete this 2-minute survey to show how much demand there is for EV charging.
Ontario is expanding eligibility for ownership of renewable energy projects
The Ontario government has expanded eligibility for third party ownership of net-metered renewable energy systems. This initiative will support a wide range of building and business owners cut their energy bills and carbon emissions, even if they don’t have the up-front capital or expertise. We have urged the Ministry of Energy to ensure that customers with net meters are also allowed to participate in the government’s recently proposed ultra-low overnight Time-of-Use option, which will further help home and business owners save on electricity bills and encourage EV adoption.
