Albertans are embracing solar energy.
1,328 Energy-Efficient Projects Completed
$28 Million Saved in Energy Costs
270,000 tCO2e Reduced
Alberta businesses, non-profits and institutions are investing in energy efficiency, improving their productivity and competitiveness, and saving money that can be reinvested in other areas.
From upgraded lighting, to mechanical retrofits and HVAC upgrades, 105 contractors completed more than 1,300 energy efficiency projects, employing Albertans across the province.
Alberta organizations are saving nearly $30 million* in energy costs and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 270,000 tCO2e. That’s like taking nearly 60,000 passenger vehicles off the road for one year.
The energy-efficient upgrades we completed at our restaurant not only helped us save on our power and gas bills; but also helped us give back by providing EV chargers to our guests and spending more on capital versus spending it on energy bills. - Riccardo Francese, Co-Owner, Vaticano Cucina
We’re also supporting technical training in energy management for industry professionals through $860,000 in multi-year grants.
And we’re just getting started. New programs are being developed to help more organizations improve their energy efficiency, like the Custom Energy Solutions Program that launched in the spring of 2018, and a new program for non-profit organizations launching soon.
