Clean Energy Improvement Program coming soon!
The Clean Energy Improvement Program (CEIP) is designed to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through energy efficiency upgrades and scaling up the adoption of renewable energy technologies.
CEIP helps address the upfront cost barriers associated with energy efficiency and renewable upgrades. Residential, and potentially commercial property owners, can access flexible financing from the Town of Rocky Mountain House to pay for eligible upgrades that increase energy efficiency or generate renewable energy, making spaces healthier and more comfortable.
Participation in the program is enabled through the Town of Town of Rocky Mountain House’s clean energy improvement bylaw (adopted December 3, 2019). The bylaw allows the Town to offer financing for eligible upgrades and recover costs by levying a Clean Energy Improvement Charge on the property where upgrades are installed. Participation in the program is voluntary for property owners.
What makes CEIP different from all other financing options available in the market is the Clean Energy Improvement Charge is tied to the property and not the property owner. If the property is sold, the new owner assumes responsibility for repayment, while also enjoying the benefits of the upgrade(s).
- Competitive interest rates and long repayment terms
- Flexibility to repay the Clean Energy Improvement Charge at any time
- Clean Energy Improvement Charge is tied to the property, not the property owner
- If rebates and incentives (municipal, federal, or other) are available they can be used to reduce your project cost.
Types of Upgrades Available
- HVAC control and heating (e.g., high efficiency furnace, air source heat pump)
- Water heating (e.g., tankless natural gas water heater, drain water heat recovery)
- Renewable and alternative energy (e.g., solar PV, combined heat and power)
- Doors, windows and insulation
