Program funds residential energy retrofits in Leduc, Alberta

Program funds residential energy retrofits in Leduc, Alberta

LEDUC, ALTA. – A new residential energy retrofit program has been announced for Alberta.

A $4.1-million investment will be made through the Community Efficiency Financing initiative to implement a home energy retrofit financing program that will lower greenhouse gas emissions and cut down on energy costs for Leduc residents.

The funds will go towards energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades for residential properties. Homeowners will then repay the cost of their home energy projects over time through a Clean Energy Improvement Program charge added to their property tax bills. Application intake is expected to begin in late May.

The program will be available to residential homeowners with eligible properties, including townhouses and detached, semi-detached and row houses, as well as multi-unit residential buildings of three storeys or less. Participants can select from a variety of upgrades, including solar photovoltaic systems and solar water-heating; air-source heat pumps; high-efficiency furnaces, boilers and lighting fixtures; home insulation; and air sealing. To promote participation, the city will offer rebates for eligible upgrades, EnerGuide Home Evaluations and electric vehicle car chargers. 

“With 18 per cent of emissions coming from our buildings, upgrading and renovating our homes to be more energy-efficient will help us achieve our climate targets while also saving Canadians money on energy costs and creating good, sustainable jobs in our communities,” said Jonathan Wilkinson, minister of natural resources, in a statement. “Our government is pleased to help people in Leduc and across Canada to identify and capitalize on ways to cut pollution in their neighbourhoods.”
