On March 14, 2018, the Alberta government announced it is supporting municipalities by investing in new programs that will save communities money and help diversify local economies.
The Municipal Climate Change Action Centre (MCCAC) will be receiving $54 million in funding from the Climate Leadership Plan to deliver multi-year programs for small-scale community generation, energy efficiency upgrades for buildings, municipal fleet greening, solar energy for schools, and more. The grant builds on MCCAC’s current programs, which fund solar PV installations, energy efficiency audits and retrofits, and climate change resilience workshops. The new funding will help ensure that the buildings Albertans rely on and the communities they live in are more energy efficient, independent, and sustainable for the long term. Over the coming months, the MCCAC will be working to prepare for the delivery of this funding and welcomes the input of relevant stakeholders.
At this time, there are no additional details on programs or launch dates to announce. Please continue to check www.mccac.ca for details on upcoming programs as they are made available.
