Are you a building owner with fewer than 500 employees? If so, there’s funding currently available for you to undertake an energy assessment. But hurry; the application window closes at the end of September.
Natural Resources Canada has grant funding available to cover the cost of energy assesssments, up to 75% for for-profit companies and up to 100% for non-profit organizations, up to a maximum of $200,000. There is also a separate funding stream for hiring an energy manager.
Whether you’re a non- profit social housing provider, a for-profit landlord with multiple apartments, or a small manufactuing company, an investment-grade energy assessment is a key step in upgrading your building.
Such an assessment is also the first step for having your entire upgrade paid for from the future energy savings under the Energy Savings Performance AgreementTM (“ESPA”). Under an ESPATM, efficiency retrofits are fully paid for by Effciency Capital, and the expected savings are guaranteed by Efficiency Capital’s engineering partner.
With such a short application window that closes soon, Efficiency Capital is working with a number of building owners to complete their applications on their behalf. Contact Efficiency Capital if your organization would like to take advantage of this opportunity.
Efficiency Capital is a full-service developer and investor in energy efficiency projects, and is the sole implementation partner for TAF’s ESPATM . Please contact Patrick Gossage, Business Development for further information on this funding and other related services such as efficiency retrofit funding, reserve fund optimization analysis, or resiliency audits.
