The Energy Efficiency Alberta Business, Non-Profit, and Institutional Energy Savings Program offers incentives to help offset the cost of an investment in high-efficiency products. This program encourages organizations to replace outdated and inefficient equipment to help reduce emissions.
In addition to financial incentives, organizations will enjoy ongoing savings on utility bills due to reduced energy usage, and technological upgrades that can make their facilities more comfortable and efficient.
- Reduced energy use and energy costs
- Fast return on investment: energy improvements often pay for themselves within two years
- Enhanced workplace productivity: streamline operations with energy-efficient equipment
