Energy Efficiency Description:

This program shares the cost of investments that improve energy efficiency on Alberta farms. The Growing Forward 2 On-Farm Energy Management Program addresses three important industry priorities:

  1. Increased industry competitiveness;
  2. Improved environmental stewardship. When producers use energy more efficiently, they are recognized as reliable stewards of Alberta’s resources; and
  3. Improved energy management. Producers who install on-farm submeters are better aware of their energy usage and how to manage it to improve their bottom line.
