2012 Conservation Results Report

This report provides insight into conservation initiatives across the province with information on energy and demand savings from the suite of 2011-2014 saveONenergy programs, as well as results from OPA-delivered programs, time-of-use savings, other influenced conservation and activities surrounding the OPA’s Conservation Fund. 

At a program cost to consumers of under four cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh), conservation is our first priority and is at the forefront while planning for electricity in the future. Ontario is committed to investing in cost-effective programs to meet provincial and local energy needs before investing in other forms of new generation. 

Since 2006, conservation programs have seen an investment of $2 billion and have saved customers $4 billion in avoided costs. Overall, 2012 conservation programs in Ontario influenced 671 million kWh of verified annual energy savings and reduced 643 megawatts (MW) of demand across the province.

Ontario continues to be a North American energy conservation leader. Ontario’s conservation efforts are helping families and businesses across the province become more active in reducing their energy consumption. Ontarians have conserved more than 2,400 MW of electricity since 2006, the equivalent of powering over 700,000 homes.

Our conservation results demonstrate how the OPA’s conservation team and its partners, including all local electric utilities, are innovating for the future and are providing value to customers and the province.
