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 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 soon be launching the next phase of the NEET program to help organizations complete facility assessments (streamlined audits), or work through the opportunities already identified in completed 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.

How to apply

The energy audit component of the first phase of the NEET program closed on September 24, 2018. Current applications will continue to be processed, and organizations are invited to submit an Expression of Interest to Energy Efficiency Alberta for the next phase of NEET.

For Expressions of Interest submitted prior to September 24, 2018, an outline of all program steps can be found in the NEET Guidebook . Municipal Climate Change Action Centre staff will reach out to you after submitting an Expression of Interest to explain the required next steps. (Note: Submitting an Expression of Interest does not guarantee participation).

Non-profit organizations are also encouraged to participate in Energy Efficiency Alberta's Business Energy Savings Program and Custom Energy Savings Program for incentives on high-efficiency products and equipment.
