Energy & Environmental Sustainability

In 2014, Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District No. 42 began work around reducing its carbon footprint through a strategic approach to facilities management and planning.

Working in partnership with BC Hydro and Fortis BC, we have undertaken a number of energy studies to identify opportunities for energy conservation and cost savings. In 2015, we began work on a number of projects to optimize the energy consumption of our facilities.

To successfully implement and sustain energy management, we created a four-year Strategic Energy Management Plan. This plan outlines goals to reduce district-wide energy costs by more than $400,000 and reduce energy consumption by more than 4 million kWh by 2019 – the equivalent of powering 400 average BC homes.

Reducing energy consumption through conservation and efficiencies, clean energy sources can help mitigate climate change by reducing greenhouse gases. 

Visit our progress page to see where we are in our implementation of the Energy Management Plan.

Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District Energy Challenge

For the third year in a row, students and staff across the school district turned down the lights and turned up their energy-saving efforts while participating in the 2018 Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District (SD42) Energy Challenge. Read the full story
