Waterloo North Hydro is committed to the environment and conducting business in a sustainable manner.

Waterloo North Hydro was a founding partner of Sustainable Waterloo Region and is a Bronze Pledging Partner of the Regional Carbon Initiative where we have committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20% over 2010 levels by 2020.

In 2011, we moved into our new administration and service centre building on Country Squire Road. Back then, we received a LEED silver rating for the building.

We continue to look for ways to reduce our impact on the environment. In 2015, old and inefficient lighting was replaced with LED fixtures through the saveONenergy Retrofit program. The new LED fixtures use up to 80% less energy and the bulbs last up to 25 times longer. The LEDs provide significant energy savings. The LED conversion will save 248,000 kWh's a year. That's enough energy to power 26 homes for one year.
