Albertans eager to add more energy-efficient products to their homes can get their shopping lists ready, as the latest round of instant savings hits stores on April 5.
 
Through the Residential Retail Products Program, Albertans can now save on programmable thermostats, low-flow shower heads, smart power bars, LED light fixtures and yard lights with motion sensors.

“Our popular programs are putting money back into households, supporting local jobs and reducing millions of tonnes of emissions – that’s a win for Alberta families, a win for the economy and a win for the environment,” said Shannon Phillips, Minister of Environment and Parks and Minister responsible for the Climate Change Office.

“This funding will help Albertans choose products that save money and energy, reduce carbon pollution and support local business and jobs across the province,” said Amarjeet Sohi, federal Minister of Infrastructure and Communities.

Instant savings of up to $15 per item are available in stores for many easy-to-install, energy-efficient products.
 
The length of the campaign differs from one retailer to the next and an up-to-date store locator can be found at efficiencyalberta.ca/instantsavings.
 
 
Home improvement rebates are being offered with up to $3,500 available for insulation, up to $1,500 for windows and up to $1,000 for tankless hot-water heaters.
 
Online rebates are the last way to save with up to $100 available on eligible washing machines, refrigerators, smart thermostats and $75 for furnaces with variable-speed motor fans.
 
The Instant Savings Campaign is part of the Residential Retail Products Program that is being funded by $26 million from Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan over the next three years, plus $25 million from the federal government’s Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund.

Last year, people across Alberta received over $24 million in instant rebates and bought over 9.5 million energy-efficient products.
 
The province released the latest information on energy savings at Home Hardware in Sherwood Park on Thursday morning.
