Rebates on renewable energy products

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

The AEA 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, non-profit organizations and NWT residents.

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

Residents are eligible for up to $20,000 in rebate funding.

Businesses, community governments, Indigenous governments and non-profit organizations are eligible for up to $50,000.

The rebate amount you receive will be the lower of:

  • 50% of the total eligible costs of your project
  • A calculation based on the amount of money and greenhouses gases that your project will save (see the program guidelines for more information)
