Energy Assistance Program

Energy Assistance Program

High utility bills can be stressful for lower-income households and it can be costly to make energy efficient upgrades to your home. We’ve partnered with SaskPower to help save you money, energy, and water through the Energy Assistance Program. 

The Energy Assistance Program targets low-income residents across Saskatchewan (both renters and owners) who have not traditionally been able to access other energy efficiency programs.  The City of Saskatoon’s partnership with SaskPower ensures that customers in both SaskPower’s and Saskatoon Light & Power’s service areas can access the program!  The program has also received funding from the Government of Canada’s Low Carbon Economy Fund. 

How It Works 

SaskPower’s Home Energy Advisors will come to your home and complete a walkthrough. They'll upgrade your home with free energy efficient items that’ll help you save money and energy. The Home Energy Advisors will also give you simple everyday tips to help keep your energy use down, helping you save up to $230/year on your utility bills!  

Energy and water saving items include: 

  • Smart thermostat 
  • ENERGY STAR LED light bulbs 
  • Smart power strip 
  • High-efficiency showerheads 
  • Aerators (kitchen and bathroom) 
  • Drying racks
