Rural Electric Program

Value

There is no limit on the amount or number of grants that an eligible producer may receive. The maximum grant per service is $5,250.

Description

The Rural Electric Program is a cost-sharing program, which helps defray the high cost of electrical service to farmers. It assists farmers to access a basic, essential service at a reasonable cost and aids in the diversification of our rural economy. It also provides partial equity with other Albertans living in urban areas as well as those living in other western provinces that benefit from lower hook-up costs and power rates sponsored by their provincial governments through Crown corporations.

Eligible Applicants

conjunction with their farming operation.
