Unlock opportunities in the energy efficiency and renewable energy sector

Help your customers save money and reduce energy with access to a new kind of financing in Alberta

The Clean Energy Improvement Program makes it easier for your customers to make deep energy-saving retrofits—and make them sooner rather than later.

That’s because this new kind of financing is tied to the property, not the property owner. Repayment is made through property taxes and the financing can transfer to a new owner if the property sells. This gives the property owners the confidence to make deeper retrofits, bundling multiple upgrades at once.

Boost your business by encouraging your customers to apply to the Clean Energy Improvement Program!
