We’ve all been awaiting the Government of Alberta’s incentives to recoup some of the expenses we are now paying because of the carbon tax. The news was released this past week. Here is a quick summary. There are currently 3 areas of savings.
1. Instantly at the till on energy efficient products such as, LED light bulbs, programmable thermostats, lighting control switches, power bars, motion sensors, timer, clothes lines and low flow faucets. YOU MUST ACT QUICKLY as these savings are available until June 11 ONLY.
2. Home improvement rebates are available for insulations, windows and tankless hot water heaters. You must use their contractors and they will walk you through the savings and process.
3. Online rebates are available on refrigerators, washer and smart thermostats. $100.00 per appliance. Filling out an application and submitting a receipt gets you some money back.

A 4th area of savings is still in the works, and is to roll out this summer. Solar energy! The Government is still seeking a third party to deliver a program!
