Emissions Reduction Alberta’s (ERA) Energy Savings for Business Program is now accepting applications for projects that cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in small- and medium-sized industrial and commercial facilities.
The program, with up to $55 million in funding available, offers incentives to eligible Alberta businesses and non-profits to choose commercially available high-efficiency products and onsite energy generation technologies.
Up to $250,000 is available for each project with a maximum total of $500,000 per parent company to cover the cost of adopting new products and services. It is designed to support local skilled trades, contractors, and suppliers such as HVAC businesses, insulation companies, lighting systems installers, and electricians.
All participating contractors must register to become eligible to participate in the program. Eligible contractors will be required to complete applications for pre-approval and submit all required documents. Before the program launched, 270 contractors from across the province already registered to participate.
A wide range of energy efficient products and onsite energy generation technologies are eligible: refrigeration, HVAC, motors and drives, water heating, solar PV, combined heat and power (CHP), building envelope and windows, and more.
A high volume of projects (up to 4,000) is expected.
