What Is Energy Efficiency Alberta?
Energy Efficiency Alberta (EEA) is a new Government of Alberta agency that is dedicated to helping the province save energy. The agency was born out of the Climate Leadership Plan and released their four initial programs to Albertans in the spring of 2017.
Energy Efficiency Alberta Savings Programs
Every Albertan is eligible for this program, whether you own your own country home or rent a condo in downtown Calgary. An EEA installer will walk through your home and offer energy efficient products — at no charge — to increase your overall efficiency. LED bulbs, high-efficiency showerheads, faucet aerators and advanced power bars are all examples of products that you could receive.
The second initiative of the EEA is to provide online rebates on certain energy-efficient appliances like refrigerators, washing machines, and smart thermostats. Additionally, they are offering home improvement rebates that can allow Albertans to save on new home insulation or windows to increase overall efficiency.
For those that own businesses, the EEA is encouraging organizations to replace lightings, water heaters and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) units with high-efficiency equipment.
Looking toward the future, the EEA is rewarding those that want to use renewable energy by offering a rebate on the installation of a solar photovoltaic (pv) system.
