Clean Energy Improvement Program

Homeowners can now apply for the Clean Energy Improvement Program (CEIP) – an innovative financing tool for property owners to reduce GHG emissions by investing in energy efficient and renewable energy upgrades without an upfront cost.

CEIP provides a low interest financing option for homeowners with repayments through annual property tax bills. CEIP repayment is tied to the property, not the property owner. If the home is sold, the new owner assumes responsibility for repayment, while also enjoying the energy savings and other benefits of the upgrade(s).  

CEIP is administered by Alberta Municipalities. Grant and loan funding from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities offsets the program administration and the upfront costs for the home energy upgrades.

CEIP in Action - Martin's Path to a Sustainable Devon

Key Features of CEIP

  • The Clean Energy Improvement Program is first come, first served. Roughly 14-18 residential upgrade projects are budgeted for each year, during the four years the Town has funding from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. Homeowners will need to have five years of property tax history to be eligible.
  • The Clean Energy Improvement Charge is tied to the property, not the property owner.
  • Repayment is through property tax with terms based on the effective useful life (EUL) of the completed upgrades, to a maximum of 20 years. 
  • CEIP is stackable with rebates and incentives.

Types of Upgrades Available through CEIP

Typical upgrades through CEIP include:

  • HVAC control and heating (e.g., high efficiency furnace, air source heat pump)
  • Water heating (e.g., tankless natural gas water heater, drain water heat recovery)
  • Renewable and alternative energy (e.g., solar PV)
  • Doors, windows and insulation
