A key focus of the takeCHARGE program is to help raise awareness amongst residents, businesses and communities of the importance of using energy wisely and encourage more people to take action today to reduce their energy usage. We are committed to providing residents and businesses in Newfoundland and Labrador with support in their energy conservation efforts through our takeCHARGE residential and commercial rebate programs.
The takeCHARGE of Your Town initiative started in 2010 and is aimed at encouraging residents and municipalities to reduce their energy use. We have awarded $175,000 in the past 12 years to cities and towns successful in winning our challenge.
In 2023/2024, we will once again be inviting municipalities to submit proposals that will support their efforts to develop or improve energy conservation or energy efficiency projects. Projects must demonstrate a positive effort to conserve energy that benefits the entire community. Examples of eligible projects include, but are not limited to, energy efficient upgrades to a town hall or municipal building.
