New, efficient LED lighting that replaces old incandescent and fluorescent lighting can reduce an organization’s energy use, electricity costs and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Upgrading frequently used lighting from older incandescent or T12 lights to LEDs generally has a payback of less than 5 years, and the payback is often less than 2 years.
The Arctic Energy Alliance (AEA) has received limited-time funding from the Government of the Northwest Territories and the Government of Canada to help install LEDs in buildings across the NWT. The funding will support the targeted replacement of inefficient lighting in non-profit organizations throughout the Northwest Territories. The intent of the project is to have a direct and widespread reduction in electricity use across the NWT by facilitating LED installation.
To apply, complete the expression of interest form below and send it back to AEA. It’s easy, simple and can save your organization money and energy. Non-profit organizations who pay utility bills in the NWT are eligible. There is a limited amount of money so the organizations that can save the most energy and lower GHG emissions the most will be highest on the list for partnering and funding.
Deadline for applications: May 31, 2023
