Organizations looking to increase the sustainability of their operations could receive funding to hire an energy manager or conduct an energy assessment. Deadline for applications: September 30th.
A new funding opportunity through Natural Resources Canada aims to support businesses and non-profits with an interest in greening their operations.
The Energy Manager Program provides financial assistance to identify and adopt energy efficiency solutions that reduce energy use, operating costs and greenhouse gas emissions. The program will support the below activities:
- 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
- Fleet Energy Assessment: Conduct an energy assessment of a fleet (medium Class 5, 6, or heavy-duty Class 7, 8a, 8b) and receive up to 50% of total project costs to a maximum of $10,000 per fleet assessment and $50,000 per organization.
As a local environmental non-profit with a focus on energy efficiency, EnviroCentre has a vested interest in energy planning. We would like to encourage and support local non-profits to apply for this funding and we are able to provide the Certified Energy Manager and/or auditor required for your project.
The application process is quite simple, and we are happy to assist you – get in touch and we’ll guide you through the process.
If you do choose to go ahead with this application and project, there are resources available to help finance whatever path you choose to take toward sustainability. EnviroCentre is more than happy to link you up with those resources at that stage.
