ATCO Community Energy Fund

ATCO is committed to meeting the needs of a new and exciting energy future, which is why we have established the Community Energy Fund to help municipalities, schools, not-for-profits, and registered charities pursue solutions, opportunities, and supporting education towards a more sustainable, net zero future.

Each year we will be giving a grant to organizations and programs within the ATCO Gas or ATCO Electric service area in Alberta for community energy projects. If your organization is eligible, you can apply to receive one-time funding of up to $15,000 to help with your projects or programs, large and small.

Applications are open until June 30, 2024

Eligible Projects or programs that could receive funding from ATCO’s Community Energy Fund include:

  • Energy audits to identify energy efficiency improvements
  • Energy efficiency upgrades for community facilities
  • Education programs or student clubs supporting renewable gas, clean technologies, or renewable solutions education
  • Lower-emitting options for public or community transportation
  • Pre-feasibility and feasibility studies for clean energy projects
  • Renewable energy solutions and/or clean technologies 

The Community Energy Fund will prioritize submissions that clearly define how your organization, school or community supports your journey to a net zero future and demonstrates the positive impact that will be achieved through your actions. The evaluation scorecard specifically examines how each program supports the following indicators:

  • Energy Transition
  • Community Impact
  • Innovation
  • Evaluation & Metrics
  • Student leadership & Education (for school applicants only)
