Energize Bridgewater is a community-wide initiative to accelerate the transition of our community into a “clean energy economy”. Started in 2016, the initiative has resulted in practical energy demonstration projects, innovative new partnerships, and new knowledge and skills. Through this initiative, the Town of Bridgewater and its network of Energy Partners are engaging a broad cross-section of the community to achieve these ambitious goals by taking concrete action on innovative energy solutions. This bold initiative is proving to be unique not only in Nova Scotia but across Canada.
The community’s shared vision and commitments have been recorded in the Community Energy Investment Plan that has mapped out an economically-viable pathway toward a clean local energy economy, and recommends practical financial tools that will make energy solutions more affordable for residents, businesses, and organizations.
