Individual facilities with over 10,000 tonnes of annual GHG emissions are eligible for incentives up to $1 million per year and parent facilities implementing Custom Energy Solutions projects in multiple facilities are eligible for incentives up to $2 million per year. Facilities with less than 10,000 tonnes are eligible for incentives up to $250,000 per year for individual facilities and $500,000 per year for parent facilities.
While we are looking to support broad participation from all industries in Alberta, incentives will be distributed on a first come, first served basis for eligible customers that meet conditions for participation.
