The Carbon Charge Fund
The Carbon Charge fund will be used for renewable energy installations, energy efficiency upgrades, improved metering, reductions in energy consumption, and education initiatives. Funding for particular projects will be decided on by a new Carbon Charge Committee.
Of the initial $300,000 for the 2016-2017 Carbon Charge, so far, the Carbon Charge Committee has decided to allocate $200,000 to energy efficiency and infrastructure projects, including metering upgrades (possibly through the development of a Green Revolving Fund) and to allocate $60,000 to energy research, analysis, and strategic planning.
We will post more information here as the decision making process becomes finalized and as projects are decided upon.
