We support the benefits that energy efficiency and community energy systems can provide to all Albertans. We believe that electricity distribution companies like ours play an important role in the future delivery of programming and initiatives that help our customers and communities reduce their carbon footprint and achieve cost-savings on their energy billing.

    Other notable organizations involved in advocating for the adoption of energy efficiency include:

    Since 2007, AEEA has played an important role in advancing energy efficiency policy advocacy within the province. AEEA’s members are a diverse group of stakeholders working collaboratively to solve problems, coordinate action and reduce the barriers to the adoption of energy efficiency technology and activities in Alberta. 

    FortisAlberta’s support for energy efficiency initiatives goes beyond our energy savings tips, videos, contests and grants. We believe in partnering with other organizations that are looking to help educate Albertans and bring awareness to the vital role energy efficiency plays in benefiting our homes and communities.

    We are excited and proud to be partnering with Earth Rangers! Earth Rangers teaches students how they can help reduce the impacts of climate change by conserving energy in their home. Earth Rangers will be touring selected schools in FortisAlberta’s service territory to share their message and to ask students to “Flip the Switch” for energy conservation. See where we'll be in your community this year.

    In 2018, FortisAlberta signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Red Deer College (RDC) in order to work together to advance a sustainable and resilient energy future through education, community engagement and demonstrations of emerging technologies at RDC’s Alternative Energy Lab.
