Alectra’s downtown Hamilton facility has taken advantage of HCE’s District Energy System and reduced our natural gas usage by 63 per cent. Electricity savings have also been found as we continue to improve our processes that were developed to meet the ISO 5001 Energy Management System Certification.
Alectra conducted a materiality assessment to gather feedback from stakeholders to determine what issues are relevant and significant to them. This helped define what sustainability means to us: As a sustainable company, we are committed to empowering our customers, communities, and employees, protect the environment, and embracing innovation to meet today’s needs and the needs of future generations.
AlectraCARES Community Support Program has supported over 24 non-profit organizations in Hamilton to help foster a healthy, diverse, and sustainable community.
We provided Mohawk College with the use of a decommissioned substation for students to learn about transformers, switchgear and substations in a life-like working environment.
Alectra has continued to support businesses and residents in Hamilton by helping customers reduce their energy consumption totaling 34,000,000 kWh, the equivalent of taking 3,786 homes off the grid for a year.
