Apply Now

The Energy Efficiency Alberta Business, Non-Profit, and Institutional Energy Savings Program offers rebates to encourage organizations to choose high-efficiency products.

To participate, follow these steps:

  • Review the Eligible Measures List. It includes rebate values and technical eligibility criteria for the Business, Non-Profit, and Institutional Energy Savings Program.
  • Submit an online Application for up to $100,000 per Site ID. There are two application streams; post-installation OR pre-approval.
  • Pre-approval is optional. It allows you confirm eligibility of your project prior to making the investment. Once pre-approval is complete, funds will be reserved for 6 months. Then, you’ll be asked for your final invoice and a proof of payment before the cheque is processed.
  • Participants are encouraged to work with the contractor(s)/manufacturer(s)/distributor(s) of their choice to purchase and install eligible measures.
  • Complete the online Application on your own or with the help of your contractor(s)/manufacturer(s)/distributor(s). There is no qualified contractor list.
  • Finish your online application by adding equipment (including full model number) and uploading required documentation.

You’ll receive emails informing you of your application status as it is processed. The participant will receive the rebate cheque in the mail approximately four weeks following submission of a complete Application.

DLC QUALIFIED PRODUCTS – MODEL NUMBER REQUIREMENTS CHANGES

Energy Efficiency Alberta programs are improving processes on an ongoing basis. In an effort to increase the speed of application processing and to expedite post-installation site inspections for the Business, Non-Profit and Institutional Energy Savings Program, we will be requiring that (Original Equipment Manufacturer) OEM model numbers be displayed on the physical equipment so that it can be verified during post-installation site inspections. In the case of re-branded products, with model numbers displayed on products that differ for the OEM model number, we require that the re-branded model number be listed with the DLC, and that the DLC Product ID be referenced in the application. Click here for more information on DLC Private Labels.

All applications for products with DLC technical eligibility require a DLC qualified model number and associated DLC Product ID in:
  • The Equipment section of the online application
  • Application documentation (price quote, invoice, specification sheets)
This change will take effect starting the first week of January 2018 and only affect new applications. We strongly encourage those affected by this change to act quickly.
