ENMAX energizes Calgary communities

/ Calgary

​For over 15 years, ENMAX has proudly supported Calgary communities by rebating a portion of outdoor ice rink lighting costs through the Rinklighter program. Though successful, the program only held seasonal benefits to participating communities. ENMAX's support is now increasing through a transition to a year-round concept that will meet a critical need in the day-to-day operations of Calgary's community associations.

"The Energizing Spaces Fund responds to what community associations have identified as a gap," said Karla Wingate, Manager, Community Sponsorship and Investment, ENMAX. "The funding will help replace old kitchen appliances with new and more energy efficient models that use less electricity. For some communities, it can also mean expanding their kitchen capacity and increasing revenues through the ability to hold larger events or the creation of catering opportunities."

"In many cases, community centres do not have the financial ability to make these upgrades on their own," said Leslie Evans, Executive Director, Federation of Calgary Communities. "The Energizing Spaces Fund will provide $75,000 annually towards this goal, a three-fold increase over the previous program."

Funding will be allocated annually every January, April and October. The Federation will administer the program and additional dollars will be provided to them by ENMAX to cover these costs. Communities interested in applying for funding can do so through the Federation.

ENMAX Corporation, through its subsidiaries, makes, moves and sells electricity to residential, small business and large commercial customers and is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, with offices in Edmonton. ENMAX Power Corporation owns and operates transmission and distribution infrastructure in Calgary and ENMAX Energy Corporation owns diverse electricity generation facilities throughout the province. Since 2007, ENMAX has been named one of Alberta's Top Employers. ENMAX Energy is currently the retailer of choice for both The City of Calgary and The City of Edmonton.
