Energy Efficiency Description:

Each participating First Nations community is matched with an energy efficiency specialist to select qualifying homes and recommend energy efficient measures.

Energy saving measures may include insulation and basic energy efficiency upgrades:

  • compact fluorescent light bulbs;
  • insulated pipe wrap;
  • draft proofing;
  • faucet aerators;
  • low-flow showerheads.

The program provides community members with training to do the upgrades. Energy saving seminars can be arranged to provide community members with information and tips on what they can do to make their communities more energy efficient.
