"First Come First Serve!" Businesses, non-profit organizations and institutions can save hundreds of dollars annually with a new energy efficiency rebate program.

Organizations and businesses can purchase and install eligible energy-efficient lighting, heating and other products to receive a rebate to a maximum of $60,000 per year, per facility on a first-come, first-served basis.

Alberta organizations that can participate in this program include:
  • Individual businesses (except large final emitters as defined in Alberta's Specified Gas Emitters Regulation)
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Co-operatives
  • Institutions such as schools, hospitals, universities and colleges
  • Multi-unit residential buildings: common areas such as lobbies, recreation rooms and parking lots are included
Quick facts
  • The Business, Non-Profit and Institutional Energy Savings Program expects about 3,000 participants.
  • An incentives budget of $10 million is available to eligible organizations.
  • The contractor delivering the program is hiring eight Albertans to support program implementation.
  • Overall, the program is expected to support the creation of about 280 full-time jobs for Albertans.
  • The program will lower utility bills for Albertans by about $32.8 million (lifetime savings from the first year of the program).
  • Alberta organizations save $1.20 for every $1 they put in to the program.
  • The program's estimated energy savings is 70,000 gigajoules.
  • The program will achieve carbon savings of 195,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents. This is the same as taking 30,000 cars off the road for one year.
