The Clean Energy Improvement Program (CEIP) is a program that provides property owners in participating municipalities in Alberta access to low-cost financing to make energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades to their properties. CEIP is an “opt-in” program, where property owners can apply to be approved to participate. Participating property owners repay the financed amount through their property taxes over a period of time.
The program’s aim is to increase the installation of green upgrades to reduce the use of energy and reduce impacts to the environment; eligible upgrades include furnaces, windows, solar panels, insulation, and more. CEIP is administered by Alberta Municipalities, which is a not-for-profit association that represents and provides services to municipalities in Alberta.
