Grande Prairie going green with energy efficiency programs

Grande Prairie’s uptake of energy efficient products is being called “incredible”. Energy Efficiency Alberta vice president Darryl Hill was in the city Tuesday and told a Chamber of Commerce luncheon that local residents and businesses have been “very responsive” to its programs.

“We’re providing value to Albertans and communities like Grande Prairie have played a big role in our programs. With more than 10,000 projects in every region of the province, we generated $475 million in economic growth, and more than $3 saved for every $1 invested.”

Energy Efficiency Alberta was created in early 2017, offering free items like light bulbs and low-flow showerheads and rebates on other eligible products. Since then, it estimates one in 12 Grande Prairie homes upgraded to energy efficiency products and more than 40 businesses and non-profit organizations received incentives to do the same.

The numbers also show local contractors have installed nearly 40,000 energy-efficient products in the city, including 200 hot water heaters, as well as worked on 60 insulation projects and 100 window replacements.
