Alternative Energy Technologies Program

See the "Evaluation" section below for more information on how applications are funded.

This program provides funding for renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, wood pellet heating, biofuel/synthetic gas and ground source heat pumps. This funding is available to communities, commercial businesses and NWT residents.

Please note that as of November 19, 2018, the AEA can no longer offer new rebates on grid-connected renewable electricity projects in communities that use hydroelectricity. See below for more information.

The Alternative Energy Technologies Program funding is split into three sections:

  • the Residential Renewable Energy Fund (RREF): to assist residents,
  • the Business Renewable Energy Fund (BREF): to assist commercial businesses including off-grid lodges and camps,
  • The Community Renewable Energy Program (CREP): to assist community and Indigenous governments.

The following information applies to the Residential Renewable Energy Fund (RREF) and the Business Renewable Energy Fund (BREF).
