A tailored approach to reducing operating costs
Custom Energy Solutions helps Albertan facilities improve productivity, save energy and save money by upgrading inefficient equipment and making other energy improvements.
Knowing there’s rarely a one-size-fits-all answer to improving energy use and efficiency in your facility, we’ll work directly with you to identify your specific goals and needs. We offer end-to-end support and incentives to identify and implement enhancements that are designed to deliver the best results for your facility.
Is your facility eligible?
Industrial, institutional and commercial customers with facilities operating within the Province of Alberta may be eligible. There is no minimum threshold for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions but facilities emitting 10,000 tonnes or more of greenhouse gases annually will be eligible for higher incentives with certain offers.*
We work closely with the following facility types and more:
- Natural gas and oil field production
- Natural gas and oil processing plants and pipelines
- Mining operations
- Manufacturing facilities (e.g. food processing, chemical processing, fertilizer production, wood products, pulp and paper)
- Higher education
- Wholesale trade
- Waste management
- Commercial buildings
Learn about eligibility criteria, including how to calculate your facility’s annual emissions.
*Facilities defined as Large Final Emitters or customers or facilities that have opted into the Carbon Competitiveness Incentive Regulation are not eligible.
Where should you start?
- Are you looking to better understand your facility’s energy use before determining what upgrades should be completed? Or, do you already know where you want to invest and what the energy reductions will be? The customer journey will help determine what path is best for your facility.
