The federal government launched an Energy Manager Program which provides financial assistance for municipalities, universities, colleges, schools, hospitals, and non-profit organizations to identify and adopt energy efficiency solutions that reduce energy use, operating costs and greenhouse gas emissions. It could offer you:
Energy Manager: Hire an energy manager and receive up to 75% of total project costs (100% for non-profit) to a maximum of $100,000 per organization
Energy Assessment: Conduct an energy assessment of a building or industrial facility and receive up to 75% of total project costs (100% for non-profit) to a maximum of $40,000 per assessment and $200,000 per organization
The Energy Assessments could apply to ASHRAE Level III energy audits. Application must be submitted by September 30, 2019. Projects will be assessed and selected based on the quality of the application and distribution of available funding across provinces and sectors.
Here are a couple of additional Climate and Energy Funds and Loans:
Climate Action Incentive Fund: Municipalities, Universities, Schools and Hospitals (MUSH) Retrofit stream will be announced later in 2019-2020.
BBP Energy Retrofit Loans from the City at approximately 2.9% for 20-year term.
