Albertans! Register for Residential No-Charge Energy Savings Program
February 28, 2017 - Open to all Alberta households—regardless of income or housing type—the new Residential No-Charge Energy Savings Program from Energy Efficiency Alberta aims to make “life more affordable” for families by helping them conserve energy with products such as LED lighting and power bars.

“All of the home upgrades are at no charge to you, and they’ll reduce your electricity bills,” said environment minister Shannon Phillips.
Upon registering through efficiencyalberta.ca, you will be contacted (starting in April) to make an appointment for in-home installations of efficiency products.
All installation will be conducted by qualified agents who schedule home visits. Installers will remove old products and replace them with more energy-efficient ones, such as:
• LED lighting
• High-efficiency shower heads
• Faucet aerators (if none present)
• Advanced power bars
• Smart thermostats
Managing the delivery of the Residential No-Charge Energy Savings Program is Ecofitt, a third-party service provider. In fact, Ecofitt is hiring a number of individuals in a variety of positions to deliver this program to Albertans. Interested applicants can find out more about the jobs by clicking on Careers at ecofitt.ca.
