REC Program funding available for Alberta municipalities

On March 14th, 2019, the Municipal Climate Change Action Center (MCCAC) announced grant funding to support energy savings initiatives for municipally owned recreation facilities (REC Program) up to $750,000 per municipality.

The REC program, administered by the MCCAC, helps municipalities upgrade facilities, reduce emissions, save energy and costs by becoming more energy efficient.

Municipalities qualify for rebates for a scoping audit, an engineering study, and energy efficiency retrofits for a variety of municipally-owned recreation facilities. Projects can be funded up to 75% of the costs.

All designated municipalities within the province of Alberta are eligible to participate in the REC program. The total funding for the REC program is $9 million.
