The world is changing. As climate change becomes well-researched—and more impacting
on both the global and regional levels—more and more governments are beginning to push for green energy reform. It’s a change that is causing a lot of economic uncertainty, especially for the provinces and communities whose economies have a direct link to the energy industry. However, as scary as change can be, green energy does introduce a lot of potential into even the most energy-based economies. In fact, as more Alberta energy suppliers become aware of the benefits of investing in green energy, they are responding by creating more opportunities for green energy within their own companies. How? Through green energy incentives.
Part of the reason more and more companies are beginning to invest in green energy solutions is because it’s an investment that offers diversification, and that is of particular importance to those companies who just struggled through the recent oil-and-gas-related recession. Diversifying to include alternative energy sources in the pool of resources is a good way to create a more stable resource pool, and that gets reflected in the costs of operation and sale. In other words, investing in green energy allows Alberta energy suppliers to become more competitive and leading edge—it gives them a market edge and allows for a much more expansive client base as well as a much more stable resource base. Plus, as the government of Alberta has been promoting, investing in green energy innovation is an investment in job creation, and that has a stabilizing effect on the entire economy—the economy that supports the company that is creating those green energy innovations included.
But apart from the potential benefits to the economy overall, how can you benefit from green energy innovations? Through green energy incentives.
Alberta energy suppliers and the Alberta government—as well as the government of Canada—have recognized the benefits of getting more energy consumers on board with green energy, and in order to encourage more to do so, they have created a number of green energy incentives. These are available through National Resources of Canada as well as through the Alberta energy suppliers themselves.
Here are a few of the Alberta energy suppliers who have the best green energy incentives on the market right now:
- ATCO Energy allows you to base between 25% and 100% of your electricity plan on Alberta-based renewable sources.
- Just Energy provides the JustGreen Power option to any plan to provide you with access to renewable energy and renewable energy credits.
- ENMAX connects consumers with the latest energy grants and incentives and provides various installation options to help home and business owners keep the costs of green energy low.
- Hudson Energy’s green energy options can supplementing or supplant traditional sources of energy.
Albertans also have opportunities such as green energy credits, and resources like Energy Efficiency Alberta to help them boost energy efficiency, reduce consumption, and access rebates and grants that are offered by Alberta energy suppliers and the federal and provincial governments.
