Energy-efficiency programs for homes
Rebates, programs1 and support are available for Indigenous communities or individual community members making energy-efficiency improvements and upgrades to their homes. We also facilitate and sponsor group lunches or dinners to talk to community members about conservation and energy-efficiency opportunities.
