In 2017, the government of Alberta provided $10 million to agriculture energy-efficiency programs. With new provincial Climate Leadership Plan funding of $1.4 billion, eligible projects that didn’t receive funding last year can apply under the expanded programs.
Grant programs include:
- Farm Energy and Agri-Processing: For primary producers and smaller agri-processors to improve overall energy efficiency.
- On-Farm Solar PV: For farm electricity customers to install solar panels.
- Irrigation Efficiency: To convert high-pressure irrigation systems into low-pressure systems.
- Energy Savings for Agri-Processors: For larger agri-processors to improve energy
More information including applications for the energy-efficiency programs will be available at agriculture.alberta.ca.
