About the program

Through the Municipal Energy Plan Program, you can get funding to develop a plan that will help your community:

  • improve energy efficiency
  • reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions
  • study the impact of future growth on energy needs
  • foster renewable energy production and economic development

Funding amount

We cover 50 per cent of eligible costs up to a maximum of:
