Save Energy – Save Money!!!

Just received this great news from Beatrice at Environment Hamilton:

Faith buildings are considered commerical buildings by Union Gas so if you are a costumer of Union Gas and decide to have an energy audit done on your faith building,they will pay up to 30% of the cost. This is huge.
Green Venture is at the ready to do the audit.

Having an energy audit done provides you with some basic information about current energy use in your building and the potential for more efficient usage. Its the best way to know where your building stands and how to save money in the long run.
Once you have the audit done you can quailify for retrofit grants from the government. This is a win-win situation.

Lastly, Union Gas has a program in place where faith groups can receive free energy saving devices such as the kitchen and bathroom aerators to save water, the free programable thermostats etc.

Please look at these documents: ESP 2009

Commercial Prescriptive Program Application Form 2009 – October 2009

The website also has excellent information

Please direct any questions to Beatrice – she can provide you with further contacts.
