Énergir helps municipalities consume less-and better!

Since 2014, Énergir's energy efficiency programs helped to:

  • Deliver 200+ energy efficiency projects in more than 60 municipalities
  • Generate savings of over 9 million cubic metres of natural gas
  • Generate GHG reductions of 17,000 tonnes—equivalent to taking 4,200 vehicles off Québec’s roads each year*
  • Provide more than $2 million in grants to municipalities
* Assuming that a vehicle clocks 20,000 km a year and emits 4 tonnes of CO2.

Low-income household supplement
Financial assistance to owners of multi-teant buildings with four or more units, one or more occupied by low-income households. The financial assistance is then shared between the building owner and the low-income households renting a unit in the building where the energy efficiency work is being carried out.

Recreation facility

Regional Multisport Centre

By coming together to build the Centre multisports régional (known by its French acronym, CMR), the municipalities of Varennes, Sainte-Julie and Saint-Amable not only created the most versatile indoor soccer pitch in Québec, they also set an example for energy efficiency in the sports and leisure sphere.
