Posted on 04/04/2019
The City of Charlottetown, in partnership with efficiencyPEI, will host an event on Wednesday, April 17 to provide valuable information on energy efficiency rebate programs for homeowners.

The free event, Ways to Save, will take place from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at City Hall (199 Queen Street) and includes a presentation on energy efficiency in residential homes. There will be staff available to answer questions about navigating and accessing money savings and rebates through efficiencyPEI.

Participants will receive a ballot for a chance to win a heat pump and installation, valued at up to $5,000. The draw will take place on April 30.

This event is free to attend, and open to Charlottetown residents. For more information, visit the Community Energy page under Sustainability or join the Facebook event page.

Ways to Save is one of two public events being held this month as part of the City of Charlottetown’s efforts to take action on its Community Energy Plan. Some of the objectives in the Plan are to significantly improve energy efficiency in buildings; to greatly reduce energy use in transportation; to transition to clean renewable energy; and, to foster sustainable community development. Through the events this month, the City aims to raise awareness of the existing energy efficiency rebates offered by efficiencyPEI, and how the public can build energy efficiency into their homes through energy efficiency upgrades and design.
