Clean Energy Community Fund (CNW Group/ATCO Ltd.)

Today, ATCO announced the recipients of our 2023 Clean Energy Community Fund, a new grant making program that supports organizations on their energy transition journey. Twelve Alberta schools, community groups and municipalities will receive funding to help them achieve their energy and sustainability goals, with projects that include energy audits, community charging stations, solar panel installations and LED light conversions.  

"ATCO's financial support allows our students to turn their ideas and learning into meaningful action," said Jessica Puurunen, who is the Science Team Leader at Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Academy in Canmore. "The research and calculations that went into our school's energy audit was an excellent project; however, we now have the real dollars to invest into actioning those recommendations. Students will see their theoretical work turn into real, tangible impacts on our school's energy efficiency."

ATCO believes a sustainable future involves increasing energy efficiency and requires the adoption of innovative solutions to better serve our communities.  

"For ATCO, sustainability is more than an aspiration; it is interwoven with our strategy, our day-to-day operations, the products and services we provide, and part of our community investment endeavors," said Melanie Bayley, President, ATCO Electric. "We are proud to be at the forefront of the energy transition, and in a position to provide financial support to organizations and municipalities who are looking at ways to decarbonize and lower GHG emissions."
