Alectra Utilities is the first electricity distribution company in Canada to earn the ISO 50001 Energy Management System Certification from the International Organization for Standardization.
This formal recognition recognizes Alectra Utilities’ continuous improvements in energy efficiency at four facilities across its Hamilton, St. Catharines and Stoney Creek.
The ISO 50001 certification process began two years ago, with the implementation of a more integrated and systematic approach to continuously improving and maintaining an energy management system. The resulting outcome included upgrading windows at all facilities, replacing aging HVAC systems, installing new roofing and switching to more energy-efficient lighting.
The Alectra Utilities team leading the certification process also created an Energy Management Policy, wrote in-depth procedures and audited projects, practices, systems and equipment.
Future projects and initiatives are planned to improve energy conservation and performance to ensure that Alectra continue to lead by example for its customers, contractors and employees. To learn more about Alectra’s commitment to energy efficiency, visit alectrautilities.com.
