“The Commercial Energy Incentive Program makes energy-efficiency upgrades in these larger buildings more accessible and affordable,” said Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources Scott Kent. “These upgrades will mean significant savings in energy and money—the bigger the building, the greater the savings.”

The new program targets two areas. It assists Yukon apartment and condominium owners in retrofitting their buildings to improve energy performance and reduce energy consumption, costs and emissions. It also targets the lighting efficiency of commercial buildings by encouraging owners to upgrade to LED lighting systems.

“This innovative program provides the means to realize deep and lasting energy, cost and greenhouse gas emissions savings across Yukon in the commercial and institutional sectors,” Kent added.

The Commercial Energy Incentive Program is slated to come into effect on May 1.
