Muskoka Region Conserves Energy with Lakeland Power

We in the Muskoka region understand the importance of taking care of the environment. Our natural landscapes and resources are much of what attracts people to visit and live here. There are a variety of programs and resources available to residents and businesses to also help care for the environment. Huntsville and other region towns work directly with utility partners to seek and provide eco-friendly products and services. One such partnership is with Lakeland Power.


As a major power provider for the Muskoka region, Lakeland Power works with local government such as the Town of Huntsville to lessen our environmental impact on our beautiful part of the world. We found a great video on Youtube which highlights the types of eco-friendly programs and project which Lakeland Power and towns across Muskoka are collaborating on.


Since 2011, Lakeland Power has been focused on different ways to conserve energy. Beginning this year, through 2020, one of their main goals is to conserve 15 gigawatt hours of energy throughout the region. This is equivalent to one million kilowatt hours of energy. Lakeland’s Save on Energy Program began with updating their own facilities, and moved onto helping towns like Huntsville with eco-friendly solutions to bring our energy conservation efforts up to date.


Most notably, towns across the region are being retrofitted with new LED street lights. As mentioned in our blog about Huntsville Embracing the Night Sky, these new lights not only save a considerable amount of energy, they light up the streets, not our starry nights. We can travel more safely with powerful lights on our roads, yet still enjoy the night sky. These new lights are being provided in large part from Lakeland Power’s Save on Energy Incentives. The Town of Huntsville has already taken advantage of over $45,000 in incentive funds to lower our kilowatt hours by 279,000 kWh.


If you are thinking of moving to the Muskoka region or Huntsville, this is one place you can be sure the environment is being looked after, and continual efforts are being made to conserve energy. When buying or selling real estate in the area you can also be assured of care and expertise when you put the Rick Wearing & Sandra Parrott team to work for you as well.
