The Government of the Northwest Territories encourages the efficient use of energy and water, and the utilization of northern resources in a manner consistent with the economic and social well-being of residents.
ENR offers a number of programs to these goals.
The Energy Conservation Program (ECP) helps community-funded departments, boards and agencies and non-profit organizations reduce their use of electrical and heat energy and water.
A wide variety of different projects can be eligible for funding. Historically, the Energy Conservation Program has been used to correct or upgrade existing lighting, heating, ventilation, water and electrical systems. Examples of projects included the installation of energy efficient equipment, the upgrade of existing equipment, heat recovery systems, and energy use monitoring or control systems. Typically, these types of projects also result in environmental benefits, including a reduction in emissions of greenhouse gases. Studies, workshops or other activities that will lead to future energy conservation projects will be considered.
The Energy Efficiency Incentive Program (EEIP) helps homeowners and consumers purchase new, more energy efficient models of products that they use every day. Buying energy efficient products will help you save energy costs while reducing greenhouse gas emissions
The Commercial Energy Conservation and Efficiency Program (CECEP) helps businesses reduce their heat, power and water bills by supporting commercial upgrades to reduce the use of electrical/heat energy and water. Energy conservation and financial savings are achieved by professionally analyzing and improving heating and heating controls, air sealing, lighting and lighting controls, ventilation and ventilation controls, hot water and low flow devices and other building components. Beyond the immediate financial savings, the program provides other benefits such as improved work environments and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Projects receiving a rebate through the CECEP must be pre-approved through a rebate application process. The program is delivered by the Arctic Energy Alliance on behalf of ENR.
