The Arctic Energy Alliance (AEA) is thrilled to be the recipient of a 2021 ENERGY STAR Canada Special Recognition award.
This is the AEA’s second ENERGY STAR Canada Award, coming on the heels of last year’s Program Administrator of the Year award.
Among the accomplishments that earned the AEA the award, in 2020 the organization more than doubled the number of ENERGY STAR related rebates it gave out: 1,572 rebates, worth more than $330,000. This is compared to 777 rebates in 2020. The AEA also continued a successful partnership with the North West Company to offer point-of-sale rebates on qualifying refrigerators, washers and chest freezers in participating Northern and NorthMart stores, which accounted for 21 percent of its ENERGY STAR related rebates.
Funded by the Government of Northwest Territories (GNWT), the AEA works with communities across the NWT to offer on-site energy audits and rebates on energy efficient products. By helping NWT residents, businesses and governments reduce their emissions, the AEA is helping the territory meet the goals set out in the GNWT’s 2030 Energy Strategy, which aims to equip the NWT with a secure, affordable and sustainable energy system by 2030. The ENERGY STAR program and awards are administered by Natural Resources Canada. There are roughly 20 awards each year for categories including program administrators, manufacturers, retailers, promoters, promotional campaigns and home builders.
