The Empower Me Home Upgrades program helps renters and homeowners reduce their energy consumption by installing energy saving measures, as well as providing energy education and mentorship.
The program provides different levels of support, products, and installations depending on the home, the energy bills, and how tough it is for the household to pay them. All participants receive a free energy saving kit valued around $90 with essential items that helps them improve their home’s energy efficiency. Some participants receive more in-depth upgrades related to heating, lighting or insulation if their energy consumption is very high and it is difficult for them to pay their bills.
Empower Me is inclusive and available to everyone, with in-language services available for multilingual communities. The program has limited capacity and is currently available throughout Alberta, starting with Calgary and the surrounding area. Sign Up Here.
