CanREA welcomes Alberta’s new Energy Savings for Business program

Ottawa, Ontario, November 3, 2020 – The Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CanREA) applauds the Government of Alberta’s announcement of its new Energy Savings for Business program, to be delivered through Emissions Reductions Alberta.

With funding sourced from Alberta’s Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction (TIER) system as well as the federal Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund (LCELF), the Energy Savings for Business program will provide grants to small- and medium-scale businesses toward the implementation of energy-efficient technologies, including on-site electricity generation.

“We commend the Alberta and Federal governments for this strategic investment in the Energy Savings for Business program,” said Robert Hornung, President and CEO of CanREA.

“This program is truly win-win-win: It will quickly create clean energy jobs across Alberta, it will help small- and medium-sized businesses to upgrade their facilities and bring down their energy costs, and it will achieve significant emissions reductions.”
