As discussed in the posting “Whither Ontario Small Volume Electricity Consumers“, I applied for a position on the IESO Stakeholder Advisory Committee representing small volume power consumers. The successful candidate was Steven Hall.
I have invited Mr. Hall to present guest postings on this site addressing any subject he thinks relevant to his role on the Stakeholder Advisory Committee or power rates in general.
Here is Mr. Hall’s bio:
Steven Hall (representing Consumers) is the Director of Real Property Asset Management at the Region of Peel where he is responsible for Real Estate, Construction, Facilities Management and Energy & Environment Services. As Director of RPAM, Steven provides strategic and long-term facility asset management planning for the Regional Municipality of Peel. One of the areas of responsibility for Steven is the development and implementation of the Regional Energy and Environment Management Strategy. His commitment to conservation and energy efficiency has helped the Region of Peel realize energy savings and cost recoveries of approximately $52M while contributing to a culture of conservation throughout the Region. Fittingly, Steven was awarded the certificate of ‘Outstanding Leadership in Sustainable Energy Practices’ by the Ontario Ministry of Energy. Under his direction, the Region of Peel achieved the Gold Award Certification in energy excellence by 360 Energy Inc. and the National Energy Foundation. On several occasions, Steven has been the guest of the Chinese government, including speaking at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai as well as a published author in the World Expo publication. Mr. Hall has been involved with the United Way of Peel Region for the past twenty years with his most current role as a Campaign Cabinet Member. Steven was recently awarded the ‘Civic Award of Recognition’ for his twenty plus years of commitment to volunteerism in the community.
