Office of Energy Efficiency
The Office of Energy Efficiency has been established to assist Islanders in reducing their energy consumption and minimizing the environmental footprint of our daily activities. The Office of Energy Efficiency also provides Islanders with one-stop-shopping for provincial and federal energy efficiency programs and services.
OEE Program Changes
There will be more money for energy efficient grants as the Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE) moves away from issuing loans to focus on its other programs.
The budget for the OEE will remain the same, but the money that had been allocated to loans will be added to the existing grant program.
These changes will ensure that the funding goes where it will have the greatest impact - toward energy efficient upgrades to insulation, heating systems and energy efficient windows and doors in Island homes and businesses.
New applications for loans will no longer be accepted. Applications that had already been received by the OEE will continue to be processed.
To provide Islanders with advice and programs that will promote sustainable energy use and reinforce the importance of sound energy management for the economic, social and environmental well being of Island residents and businesses.
Energy meters for home energy use are available from the provincial library service or the Office of Energy Efficiency.
