No up-front costs: There’s no risk in saying yes. HSC gets paid based on your consumption
savings on gas over time. We get paid after you’ve achieved gas consumption savings.
Action-oriented training and materials: A two-day workshop for building residents and staff
who learn how to conserve energy and promote sustainable practices in their community, with
an additional half day of training for staff on community planning and support.
Ongoing support: To help sustain your community’s commitment and deliver ongoing savings
in consumption, we provide resources, best practices, advice and encouragement on resident
engagement and conservation measures. Through our Technical Services team, we can also
offer advice and services on a range of energy measures such as retrofits and energy audits.
Measuring results: the Energy Dashboard
To measure the benefits of the Community Champion Program, you’ll receive individualized feedback
on your energy use through our Energy Dashboard. You will also get portfolio and sector-wide
benchmarking data, allowing you to see how your buildings’ performance compares to others.
