efficiencyPEI moving to better serve Islanders
efficiencyPEI will be open for business at its new expanded location at 69 Belvedere Avenue in Charlottetown on November 1.
“efficiencyPEI is expanding to better help Islanders reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases while saving money on their energy bills,” said Transportation, Infrastructure and Energy Minister Paula Biggar, whose department includes efficiencyPEI. “Applications for energy efficiency rebates have increased 300 per cent and we are thrilled that Islanders are so interested in efficiencyPEI incentives.”
efficiencyPEI offers advice and incentives on reducing energy consumption in homes and businesses. This includes financial assistance for energy audits, home heating and insulation upgrades, along with additional assistance for low-income Islanders.
The current space at 31 Gordon Drive in Charlottetown is at capacity and will be closed for the day on October 31 to allow for the move. The office will re-open at its new location on November 1 at 8:30AM.
Since opening in 2008, efficiencyPEI has provided:
• over $8 million in grants to over 10,000 residential clients
• $9.4 million in loans to 1,775 residential clients
• free weatherization service to 4,300 low-income homes
• energy reduction programs and services to over 500 businesses
The Government of Prince Edward Island’s efforts to fight climate change while protecting the pocketbooks of Islanders has helped residents save over $10 million on their energy bills while reducing CO2 emissions by 25,000 tonnes and saving 1.5 million litres of home heating fuel annually.
