The City of Edmonton launches new environment rebate program

The City of Edmonton is making green solutions more accessible to its citizens. As of yesterday, residents and businesses now have access to a mix of different environmental rebate programs that will help stimulate the local economy while investing in the city’s future environment.

This mix of rebate programs include:

The Electric Vehicle Charger and Electric Bike (ECEB) Rebate is Edmonton’s newest addition to the mix of environmental rebates in the city. Edmonton residents looking to purchase an e-bike can get reimbursed for up to 30% of the cost up to a maximum rebate of $750.

Edmonton residents wishing to install Level 2 EV chargers can get up to $600 for existing residential and up to $300 for new residential. Businesses planning to have Level 2 EV chargers qualify for up to $2,000 for existing commercial spaces.

Change Homes for Climate
