The sun is shining on Alberta municipalities! The Alberta Municipal Solar Program (AMSP) provides financial rebates to install grid-connected solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on municipally-owned facilities or land.
Since 2009, Alberta municipalities have been taking bold steps with the Action Centre to address climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. They have improved their overall energy efficiency and saved money for their municipalities for years to come. Join other municipalities in taking action on climate change with one of our funding programs.
Drive carbon reductions with electric vehicles! The Electric Vehicles for Municipalities Program provides funding to municipalities to purchase electric vehicles, charging stations, and feasibility studies.
Recruit energy expertise to reduce utility costs! This program provides funding to offset the salary costs of an energy manager to lead energy and emissions reducing projects, find cost-saving opportunities and more.
The sun is shining on Alberta’s schools! The Solar for Schools Program provides rebates to Alberta Public School Authorities to install solar PV systems on existing school facilities or land and teach students about renewable energy and the project.
Powering fitness through energy efficiency! The Recreation Energy Conservation program helps municipalities and community-related organizations implement energy efficiency retrofits to municipally-owned recreation facilities. Apply for a scoping audit, engineering study and funding to implement the retrofits.

Community groups across the province had the opportunity to play a prominent role in supporting Alberta’s energy transition by developing their own renewable energy projects. These projects enable Albertan’s to directly access and share the benefits of community scale renewable energy generation.
Up to $7 million is available to Alberta municipalities looking to start low carbon community scale electricity generation with the formation of a network partnership that will lead to the installation of a community generation facility.
Phase 1 of the Non-Profit Energy Efficiency Transition (NEET) program closed to new applications in September 2018. Phase 2 of the program is administered by Energy Efficiency Alberta and offers direct installations of basic energy efficiency upgrades to eligible non-profit and volunteer-based organizations at no charge.
