Efficiency NB adds online toolbox to promote energy efficiency
Efficiency NB has added a toolbox of resources on its website to help municipalities and community groups educate residents about the importance and benefits of energy efficiency. The community awareness toolbox includes monthly energy efficiency tips, articles, presentations and helpful links to complement efforts in public education at the local community level, says the organization.
“Municipalities and communities are key partners in raising the awareness about the importance of energy efficiency,” said Energy Minister Jack Keir. “Efficiency NB has done a great job engaging communities in encouraging energy efficiency and many of those communities are leading by example. This toolbox will be a valuable resource to help communities lower energy use and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”
Community representatives using the toolbox will also have the opportunity to subscribe to “Community Update”, a newsletter highlighting energy-efficiency successes and information about the various programs available. The toolbox and monthly newsletter are part of an entire website section for communities that also provides:
· Information about financial incentives and capital management tools for municipalities
· Stories about successful community events
· Information about energy efficiency campaigns that have taken place throughout the province.
