The Community Energy Retrofits Program works with rural, remote, and Indigenous communities to reduce energy expenses, improve household quality and comfort, replace harmful and undesirable energy sources, and develop local energy expertise through household energy efficiency projects. The program is guided by each community’s goals for energy access and security.
