Non-Profit Energy Efficiency Transition Program

Helping non-profit and volunteer organizations save money and energy.

Start saving

Energy Efficiency Alberta is accepting expressions of interest from non-profit and volunteer organizations interested in saving money and energy through energy efficiency.

Non-profit and volunteer organizations interested in participating in future energy efficiency programming can submit an expression of interest.

What is the NEET program?

The NEET program launched in January 2017 and was initially designed to help Alberta non-profit and volunteer organizations save money through $3 million in grants to complete energy-efficiency audits.

The program garnered high interest with more than 200 audits completed or in progress. Many non-profit organizations that received an audit reported that they wanted to complete the equipment upgrades, but lacked the funds, expertise or time.

Energy Efficiency Alberta listened to this feedback and expanded the program to include no-cost direct installations of energy-efficient products, helping those non-profits save money and energy while making their facilities more comfortable.

Non-profit and volunteer organizations received installations of smart thermostats, duct and pipe insulation, water-saving devices, lights and timers. Learn more about the warranty of the products installed.

We encourage non-profit organizations to also participate in the Business Energy Savings program for incentives on high-efficiency products and equipment.

How does it work?

For new applicants:

Energy Efficiency Alberta is offering direct installations of basic energy efficiency upgrades to eligible non-profit and volunteer-based organizations at no charge.

In addition to the no-charge upgrades, new applicants will also receive an on-site energy efficiency review to identify other energy-saving opportunities that may be eligible for incentives under other Energy Efficiency Alberta programs. Interested organizations are encouraged to apply by submitting an expression of interest. Energy Efficiency Alberta will contact you to explain the required next steps. Learn more about eligibility. (Note: Submitting an expression of interest does not guarantee participation.)

For existing NEET participants:

Organizations that have already completed a Detailed Energy Assessment and Energy Management Plan through the NEET program have automatically been enrolled for the no-charge direct installation of basic energy efficiency upgrades. If you have not yet been contacted by Energy Efficiency Alberta by email, please contact us at hello@efficiencyalberta.ca.

What products are being installed?

Installed products will include, but are not limited to, smart thermostats, duct and pipe insulation, door seals, water-saving devices, lights and timers. Other basic energy-efficiency products may be installed, depending on the unique needs of the organization. Learn more about the warranty of the products.

We encourage non-profit organizations to also participate in the Business Energy Savings program for incentives on high-efficiency products and equipment.
