Energy Retrofit Grant for First Nation Communities

Dec 13, 2016

The Fraser Basin Council is offering First Nation communities grants for home energy retrofits. 

The grant is for communities who are want to implement their energy efficiency plan. While most renovation grants are for making homes safe and livable, this grant focuses on energy efficiency upgrades. Net-Zero believes that it's make sense to undertake energy retrofits at the same as doing basic renovations. For example, Net-Zero completed an energy retrofit on the Kixpiox Band's Youth Drop In Centre while completing interior renovations. Click here to read about the project.
