CNP Donates $6,500 to Reach Out CentreDecember 10, 2010 (Port Colborne, Ontario) - Canadian Niagara Power Inc. (CNPI) announced today that it is making a donation to the Port Cares Reach Out Centre in Port Colborne in the amount of $6,500. This donation is for the installation of energy efficient renovations to support the completion of the Centre’s capital building project. This donation was made possible through an initiative between CNPI and the Ontario Power Authority’s Conservation programs.

The Port Cares Reach Out Centre is a meal program and drop-in centre located in Port Colborne, open to the entire community. The Centre, which served 14,600 meals in 2010, offers a friendly environment providing nutritious lunch time meals in an outreach and social support network. Supported by the local community and the United Way of South Niagara, the Centre is open to all families at 61 Nickel Street each week on Monday, Thursday and Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and Sunday breakfast served at 9:00 a.m.

“Our Company recognizes the need for such valuable community programs as the Reach Out Centre as well as the importance of promoting energy conservation in the communities where we serve. With this donation, CNPI is helping provide energy efficiency renovations which will save on future energy costs for both the Reach Out Centre and the City of Port Colborne,” said Glen King, Vice President Finance & CFO of CNPI.

As an advocate of responsible energy usage, CNPI encourages customers to consider conservation measures such as changing to energy efficient lighting, installing programmable thermostats, weatherstripping doors and windows, and take advantage of the energy conservation programs offered by the Ontario Power Authority.

“This donation from Canadian Niagara Power Inc. shows the support for this community that has been growing since CNPI entered into the lease agreement with Port Colborne Hydro Inc.,” stated Mayor Badawey. “We are very pleased that Port Cares, who are helping many of our residents, is the beneficiary of this generosity.”

On December 3, Peninsula Plastic's President, Craig Bolton, was presented with a $7,849.66 Electricity Retrofit Incentive Program (ERIP) cheque by Canadian Niagara Power. This was in recognition of the electricity savings achieved through a lighting retrofit completed at Peninsula Plastic's manufacturing facility.

The Electricity Retrofit Incentive Program, offered by Canadian Niagara Power and the Ontario Power Authority, provides incentives for commercial, industrial, agricultural and institutional customers who complete electrical retrofits that result in demand savings and/or annual energy savings. By installing energy-efficient lighting throughout the facility, the program will help reduce their environmental footprint, provide better illumination levels and reduced energy consumption.

The conservation programs for businesses offered by Canadian Niagara Power assist customers undergoing retrofits they might otherwise not be able to complete. Money saved on energy is money that can be directed instead to other priorities. We congratulate Craig Bolton and Peninsula Plastics on taking a pro-active, leadership role in energy conservation in our community.
