Inspiration

As of 2017, there are over 29,000 homes in the Town of Newmarket with the residential sector consuming approximately 4.1M gigajoules (GJ) of energy. This contributed to 118,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and costed residents $64M that year alone.

Trends predict that as current power generating infrastructure becomes more outdated and demand for energy increases, Newmarket can see a rise in energy cost between $132M to as high as $222M by 2042.
