The Northwest Territories has put in place several building efficiency programs: 

Energy Efficiency Incentive Program (2007)

The Energy Efficiency Incentive Program provides rebates for energy efficient appliances, residential retrofits, and new homes ranging from $50 to $4500.


Alternative Technologies Program (2007)

The program will support Aboriginal and community governments, non-for-profit organizations, commercial businesses, and residents to convert to renewable and clean energies. Technologies eligible for incentives include solar, hot water heating systems, and wind turbines. 


Capital Asset Retrofit Fund (2008)

Through energy audits, building surveys and energy benchmarking, buildings are identified and retrofitted to improve their energy efficiency. The program tracks actual financial savings from retrofits and reinvests them into the Capital Asset Retrofit Fund.


Commercial Energy Conservation and Efficiency Program (2011)

Eligible small businesses receive free energy audits and 25% of the cost of retrofit expenses up to a maximum of $10,000.
