Atco’s clean energy community fund boosts Alberta communities’ energy transition

A new grant from ATCO Ltd. Will provide funding to Stepping Stones Crisis Society, among nearly a dozen other organizations across Alberta. 

This newly established grant program, according to the organization, is designed to support organizations in Alberta on their journey toward energy transition. Twelve schools, community groups, and municipalities in the province will benefit from funding to realize their energy and sustainability objectives. Projects range from energy audits and community charging stations to solar panel installations and LED light conversions.  

ATCO’s commitment to a sustainable future is evident in its focus on increasing energy efficiency and embracing innovative solutions to benefit communities.  

The 2023 ATCO Clean Energy Community Fund will finance diverse projects across Alberta.
