What is Energize Bridgewater?
Energize Bridgewater is a community-wide initiative led by the Town of Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, and its many community Partners and supporters. Achieving a clean and affordable energy economy is everyone’s business, so everyone can be involved. In fact, everyone already is. By purchasing electricity, and refilling your car at the gas station, you’re making decisions every day that determine the energy reality of your household, your business, your organization and your community as a whole. Each energy decision, no matter how small, sets our community on a course toward or away from a clean energy economy.
Energize Bridgewater is about exploring new and emerging energy opportunities as a whole community, and setting up practical, cost effective solutions right here in our own backyards. Starting in the Summer of 2016, with the launch of the Community Energy Centre, the Energy Partnership and the Living Energy Laboratory, we are working together to accelerate the transition to a local, efficient, renewable energy economy. Our community’s efforts and findings have been recorded in the Community Energy Investment Plan, which was approved by Bridgewater Town Council in January 2018. The Plan can be downloaded from the front page of this website.
