Reducing energy use and increasing comfort

In partnership with the Ministry of Seniors and Housing, Energy Efficiency Alberta is now offering the Affordable Housing Energy Solutions program to improve energy efficiency, reduce energy use and increase comfort for those living in affordable housing.

Alberta’s affordable housing system contains over 36,000 housing units, supporting over 75,000 Albertans with low incomes, including seniors.

LED lights, high-efficiency shower heads and faucet aerators, smart power bars, smart thermostats, block heater/heavy duty timers and pre-rinse spray valves and other products will be upgraded in selected homes. Energy-efficient upgrades are also being made to common and exterior areas, including in hallways and parking lots.

Program goals:

  • Reduced energy use
  • Lower utility costs for affordable housing providers and tenants
  • Increase comfort for residents
  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
  • Enhanced safety through improved lighting
  • Increased environmental and financial sustainability

Please note: applications are not being accepted for this program at this time.
