Exempt Rec Facilities from Energy/Power Rate Hikes
Therefore be it resolved that the SUMA request that SaskPower and SaskEnergy exempt all recreation facilities from further utility rate increases.
Response: The federal governmentâ€™s ecoEnergy Efficiency Initiative, announcing in January of this year, may also be useful for recreational facilities- it provides a number of programs to help reduce energy usage. Within the province, Saskatchewanâ€™s Office of Energy Conservation (OEC) is working with communities to implement energy-saving solutions in recreational facilities. If the City of Melville or any other urban municipalities feel they could benefit from consulting with the OEC on how to make their recreational facilities more energy-efficient, I would recommend Terry White of the OEC.
