Evaluation:Prior utilities bills are a requirement and sub-meters are included in the program so that before and after energy comparisons can be made.

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.
