Project Funding


Decarbonization is challenging us all to re-think how we produce and consume energy. ATCO understands the changing landscape that is creating a stronger need to invest in your energy infrastructure for the future. We also understand that sometimes, the financial investment required to support initiatives can be a barrier towards putting your vision into action.

We can help make your project more economically feasible by helping you secure funding. Financial incentives from government agencies are growing in availability, but accessing them can be challenging.
