Alberta’s NEET program to help non-profits save energy
January 10, 2017 - Non-profit and volunteer agencies in Alberta will benefit from a new $1-million grant to complete energy efficiency audits, the province announced recently.

The Non-Profit Energy Efficiency Transition (NEET) Program will provide funding to help non-profit and volunteer groups determine how efficient their current lighting, heating, cooling and hot water systems are. Equipped with audit information, agencies can then take advantage of Energy Efficiency Alberta’s Business, Non-Profit and Institutional Rebate Program, which offers incentives.
“This grant is another example of carbon levy revenues being meaningfully reinvested back into Alberta,” said Shannon Phillips, the minister Responsible for the Climate Change Office.
The Business, Non-Profit and Institutional Rebate Program is one of several programs offered by Energy Efficiency Alberta—a provincial agency established as part of Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan. The agency will provide programs and services, starting this spring, to help families, businesses and communities “protect their pocketbooks and lower their carbon footprints”.
