Non-Profit Energy Efficiency Transition (NEET) Program

Funding program helps non-profit organizations determine the efficiency of their current energy systems.

Overview

The NEET Program will provide funding to help non-profit organizations determine how efficient their current lighting, heating, cooling and hot water systems are, and explore efficiency opportunities to reduce energy use and costs.

Once equipped with audit information, organizations can then take advantage of other Energy Efficiency Alberta programs.

How to apply

Due to full subscription, applications are now closed.
