First Nations Community Building Retrofit Program

FNCBRP

September 27, 2022

The Save on Energy First Nations Community Building Retrofit Program (FNCBRP) provides funding and technical support to on-reserve First Nation communities to undertake energy-efficiency projects. These projects are intended to help communities improve the energy efficiency of their band-owned commercial and institutional facilities, manage their electricity use more effectively, and save on energy costs.

What does the program offer?

The FNCBRP offers, at no cost to eligible participating communities:

Up to $100,000 in funding for the installation of energy-efficiency upgrades in on-reserve band-owned and operated commercial and institutional buildings.

On-site energy assessments and an audit report identifying energy-efficiency projects in up to four facilities chosen by the participant.

A community benchmark report to compare the energy use of these buildings with other similar buildings with the goal of prioritizing buildings for further assessment.

Project support from Save on Energy’s program delivery partner with identifying, engaging and coordinating installation contractors.

This program is delivered through either a direct install or a community install approach to best suit community needs and preferences. More details on each approach is available through the link below.

Eligibility

All on-reserve First Nations communities in Ontario connected to the provincial electricity grid are eligible to participate.

Commercial and institutional facilities must be located on band-owned land and operated for the use and benefit of the community.

An executed Band Council Resolution is required.

The full list of eligibility criteria can be found in the program requirements.
