New this year includes rebates and incentives being offered for homeowners to seal air leaks within their homes, which will complement rebates being offered through Energy Efficiency Alberta.

Rebates have also returned to allow residents to install solar panels on their homes, and HAT Smart will be matching the rebate offered through Energy Efficiency Alberta, allowing customers to access both funding sources.

In addition, rebates are also being offered for energy efficient clothes dryers, which can be couple with the province’s rebate for energy efficient washing machines. HAT Smart has also brought back its scratch and win program, which allows customers to win back the cost of small energy conservation items, such as energy efficient light bulbs or programmable thermostats.

The program is funded with a total of $210,000 for 2018, with the money coming from the Environment Conservation Charge.
