Community Energy

The Township of Langley believes it is important to create energy efficient neighbourhoods that are resilient when faced with uncertain energy costs and supply. The Official Community Plan (OCP) and Sustainability Charter each prioritize energy efficiency. In addition, the Township is a signatory to the Climate Action Charter  (PDF), and is thereby dedicated to creating complete, compact, and more energy efficient rural and urban communities. By 2021, our goal is to reduce community greenhouse gas emissions by 10% per capita below 2007 levels.

The 2010 Community Energy and Emissions Inventory (CEEI) report  provided by the Government of British Columbia showed that our efforts are already paying off. Between 2007 and 2010, community greenhouse gas (gHg) emissions from the Township decreased by 34,709 tonnes, or .33 tonnes per resident.

The Green Building Rebate Program, one of the first of its kind in Metro Vancouver, offers building permit rebates to builders and homeowners for energy efficient new residential construction or home renovations.

Program participants are also eligible to receive a subsidized EnerGuide plan or pre-retrofit evaluation by an Energy Advisor. For more information, contact the Township’s Community Development Division at 604.533.6018 or
