Invest in your organization, not your energy.

Making your organization more energy efficient

The Business, Non-Profit and Institutional Energy Savings Program offers incentives to encourage organizations to choose high-efficiency products. Once your organization has installed eligible energy efficient products you can apply for the rebate. Once approved, you’ll receive a cheque that will help cover the cost of the equipment.

This program encourages organizations to replace outdated and inefficient equipment faster than they may normally, to help reduce emissions.

You’ll save money which you can reinvest into your organization, or use however you’d like.

*Similar to other Energy Efficiency Alberta programs, some of the financial incentives in the BNI Program, such as pneumatic device conversions, are also covered by Alberta emissions offset protocols. Energy Efficiency Alberta’s BNI program is intended to provide more choice to the market to increase uptake. Project proponents must choose either financial incentives through BNI program participation or offsets but may not choose both. Financial incentives from Energy Efficiency Alberta are contingent upon the applicant agreeing to convey ownership of all environmental attributes (including potential emission offsets) to Energy Efficiency Alberta. Energy Efficiency Alberta encourages all proponents to evaluate both options to make an informed decision to proceed with offsets or financial incentives through BNI program participation.
