Non-Profit Energy Efficiency Transition (NEET) Program

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

Overview

The Non-Profit Energy Efficiency Transition (NEET) program provides funding to non-profit and volunteer-based organizations in Alberta to obtain detailed energy audits and create energy management plans (EMPs).

The NEET program is administered by the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre (MCCAC), which provides funding, technical assistance and education to support Alberta municipalities in addressing climate change. It's a partnership between the Government of Alberta, Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties and Alberta Urban Municipalities Association.

The program helps set the stage for non-profit organizations to take early action to plan for energy efficiency improvements, and positon them to participate effectively in existing and future Energy Efficiency Alberta programs.

Energy Efficiency Alberta will be launching a new Non-Profit Energy Saving program to help organizations work through the opportunities identified in NEET energy audits. As part of the program, Alberta-based non-profits will have energy-efficient products and equipment installed in their facilities at no charge or minimal cost. Program details will be available at efficiencyalberta.ca.

Funding

NEET will cover 100% of the direct costs for energy efficiency audits and energy management plans for eligible participants, up to a maximum of $12,000 per organization.

Participants with audit costs exceeding $12,000 will be invoiced directly for the remainder.

Funding is available on a first come, first served basis.

How to apply

The energy audit component of the Non-Profit Energy Efficiency Transition (NEET) program will be closed to new applicants on September 24, 2018. Current applications will continue to be processed.
