2025 Energy Action Plan

2025 Energy Action Plan

Metro is implementing its first ever Energy Action Plan PDF Icon that will transform the way we do business to increase energy efficiency and generate long-term cost savings. The Energy Action Plan focuses on three key pillars:

  • Implementing efficiency investments identified in our energy audit;
  • Modernizing design, construction, and operational practices; and
  • Engaging dynamically in the energy market.

As one of the single largest energy users in the region, Metro is an important partner for meeting regional energy goals. Implementing this Plan demonstrates how Metro will help move the region forward sustainably by providing service that is sustainable, safer and more reliable. By implementing this Plan, Metro will be able to:

  • Manage energy use pro-actively and reduce maintenance requirements
  • Reduce exposure to uncertain energy pricing, better manage costs, and see an average return on investment in less than five years
  • Strengthen our contribution to avoided regional CO₂ emissions

Since releasing the Energy Action Plan, we have been hard at work implementing several programs that increase energy efficiency, mitigate risk, and promote fiscal responsibility. Read more about our progress and upcoming priorities in our annual progress reports:
