SMART CITIES CHALLENGE -- BRIDGEWATER NAMED A NATIONAL FINALIST
We are pleased, excited, and proud to share this morning that the Town of Bridgewater is one of the finalist communities selected for the #SmartCitiesChallenge!
In being named a finalist for the #SmartCitiesChallenge, the Town of Bridgewater will be getting $250,000 in federal funding to further detail, enhance, and refine our final proposal in pursuit of the $5 million prize in our category.
Our goal? To lift 20% of our residents out of energy poverty by 2028.
To learn more about energy poverty, how it impacts about 2 out of 5 people in our community, and what we hope to do about it, we welcome you to visit http://www.bridgewater.ca/smartcities.
