December Newsletter 2020 | Dec 15, 2020
Hi <<First Name>>,

We have new resources, blog posts, and funding opportunities for municipalities to achieve real savings and real change in this edition of The Current Climate.
A new year ahead, new opportunities to save electricity and money
Recreation centres are at the heart of our communities
Local arenas, aquatic centres, and curling rinks are core gathering places that unite communities through sport, recreation, and other local events. From hockey tournaments, curling bonspiels, trade shows, concerts, and everything in between, these facilities are the heart of Alberta communities.

The Recreation Energy Conservation Program breathes new life into arenas, while reducing electricity costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Over 40 per cent of Alberta municipalities have upgraded their recreation centres through energy efficiency plans and upgrades.

Take care of your community and apply to the Recreation Energy Conservation Program.
Application deadline for small municipalities - this Friday
Why participate? The Municipal Energy Champions Program helps small municipalities manage energy use.

This program offers free support for municipalities interested in nominating staff members to become energy champions. Participating in this program adds long-lasting capacity, positively influences operations, and identifies opportunities for energy consumption reductions and cost savings.

Participating in this program will help your municipality:

  • understand the importance of energy use and management
  • better track and manage municipal energy consumption
  • move forward in the energy planning process
  • see financing options to offset the costs of energy projects
  • learn how to identify opportunities for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects
  • develop an approach for energy management initiatives

Prepare for the new year, nominate an Energy Champion by December 18.
