Ecofitt – Energy Efficiency Solutions
Your co-op is eligible to receive free energy efficiency upgrades through Energy Efficiency Alberta’s (EEA) Affordable Housing Energy Solutions Program! The goal of the program is to lower utility costs and increase Alberta’s energy efficiency! All upgrades are optional to the members living in the household so you can choose what works best for you. This is mainly an opportunity to take advantage of money put aside by the government to help Albertans make the switch to more energy efficient living.
Eligible upgrades include:
- LED lightbulbs and night lights
- smart thermostats
- smart power bars
- high-efficiency shower heads
- faucet aerators
- block heater timers
A partner company, called Ecofitt, will be installing all the upgrades on behalf of EEA. Ecofitt is the only company on contract with the Government of Alberta to handle the installation of these upgrades for the program. Ecofitt will:
- do an initial walk through of 2-3 units to get an idea of how many upgrades your co-op will need;
- schedule installation times with your co-op’s property manager or board of directors; and
- install and replace eligible products in your units.
Ecofitt will provide your co-op or your property manager with a report on the estimated energy savings 30-60 days after the final installation is done. They will also be available to answer your questions about the products (warranty, instructions, etc.) after installation is done.
We hope that you will take advantage of this Energy Efficiency Alberta program as time is limited! Ecofitt is available to visit your co-op and provide an in-depth explanation of the program and the products they will install to your members. If you have any questions, please contact Dean Tithcott or NACHA for more info.
