Cornwall, ON – The Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA) received a $5,000 grant from Enbridge Inc. for improvements to implement digital meters on the electrical lots at Charlottenburgh Park campground. The RRCA will be installing electric meters on all electrical campsites at the park to support energy conservation. These meters let ï»¿seasonal ï»¿campers monitor energy usage and will enable them to implement conservation practices.
“We embrace energy conservation and endeavor to continue as a leader of sound environmental practices,” states Roger Houde, RRCA General Manager. “These meters will lead to a significant difference in our overall energy consumption”.
“Enbridge's Community Investment Program is designed to support community based organizations such as the RRCA that enhance the lives and well-being of the citizens in communities where Enbridge has pipeline operations,” said Ken Hall, senior advisor public affairs with Enbridge. “We invest in innovative and meaningful programs and activities that provide long-term, positive results, to the greatest number of people. Our company recognizes and appreciates the important environmental contributions the RRCA is making in the Cornwall region.”
