Yukon Government Wins ENERGY STAR® Award

May 08, 2018

Congratulations to the Yukon government's Energy Branch for winning the 2018 ENERGY STAR® Canada Award in the category of Utility Energy Efficiency Program Administrator of the Year. 

Through the Good Energy Rebate Program, the Government of Yukon promotes a wide selection of qualifying ENERGY STAR® products. Products include high-efficiency home heating systems and domestic appliances, ENERGY STAR® Zone 3 windows for residential or commercial building renovations, and light sensors for LED lighting system upgrades in commercial or institutional buildings.

The ENERGY STAR® program is an integral part of the Government of Yukon’s Good Energy Rebate initiative. Since 2007, this initiative has successfully delivered close to16,000 rebates to Yukon residents, displacing 32 kilotonnes of greenhouse gas emissions, saving 11.4 gigawatt-hours of energy, and resulting in a savings of $6.5 million in energy costs. The energy saved is enough energy to power approximately 950 non-electrically-heated homes in Yukon for one year.

Visit the Good Energy Program website to learn about how you can take advantage of the rebates being offered.
