As of September 18th, 2017, the TAME+ program is now relaunched with a permanently modified rebate rate and structure for all new applicants on a go forward basis. Changes to the TAME+ program have been implemented to incentivize participation as the program approaches its final year of activity. The new TAME+ program rebate rate and structure are as follows:
An incentive of 60% of capital costs up to a maximum of $500,000 per facility of any size, with a maximum of $1,000,000 of funding per Municipality, is available for the implementation of energy conservation measures outlined in an approved Detailed Energy Assessment
Projects must also meet a minimum greenhouse gas reduction performance requirement (abatement rate) of $60 per tonne, measured by dividing total MCCAC implementation funding by a project’s lifetime greenhouse gas reductions. Funding for projects that have an abatement rate greater than $60/tonne will be pro-rated.
Energy Audit Incentive
Detailed Energy Assessments required for a project application will no longer receive specified funding due to the significant increase in implementation incentives and are not considered an eligible expense, participants must cover the full cost.
Additional Eligibility Criteria
Detailed Energy Assessments required for application must have been completed after January 1st 2016 and to the rigour of the TAME+ Detailed Energy Assessment Requirements (DEAR) document, reflecting the building in its current form
All applications must be received by December 1st, 2017 in order to be eligible
- Funding is available on a first come, first served basis. Once funding is depleted the program will close. Municipalities are eligible to submit multiple applications.
