Figures are calculated since the inception of Energy Efficiency Alberta in April 2017 to March 31, 2019. Performance results are for energy savings and GHG reductions, calculated over the lifetime of the products purchased. Energy savings and greenhouse gas reduction figures have been reviewed and verified by a third party except for in-progress industrial and commercial custom projects. Numbers have been rounded so may not always add to 100 per cent.
