November 29 Deadline approaching for the Aboriginal Community Energy Plan Program Proposals

The Ontario Power Authority has issued the following reminder that applications are being accepted until November 29, 2013, at noon for the Aboriginal Community Energy Plan (ACEP) Program.

The ACEP Program assists First Nations and Métis communities in developing a community energy plan or to update an existing community energy plan. A community energy plan is a comprehensive long-term plan to improve energy efficiency, reduce electricity consumption and assess opportunities for green energy solutions.

The ACEP Program will provide a maximum of up to $90,000 per proponent for the development of a community energy plan or to update an existing plan. Remote communities may be eligible for up to $5,000 in additional funding. The OPA will reimburse 100 percent of total project costs up to the maximum funding approved. ACEP Program funding is intended for engaging the community, gathering and analyzing energy data, and creating the plan.
