The Alberta Greenhouse Rebate Program provides eligible greenhouse operators with a grant equal to 80% of the carbon levy paid on their purchases of eligible natural gas and propane used for crop production related heating within their greenhouse.
To be eligible for funding an applicant must be a registered legal entity operating a commercial greenhouse in Alberta with sales of eligible crops exceeding $20,000 in the 12 month period prior to the application date. New start-ups that have operated for less than 12 months must have anticipated annual sales exceeding $20,000 in the twelve months after the application date.
An “Eligible Greenhouse” means a heated commercial greenhouse space under an enclosed area used to grow vegetables, fruits, bedding plants, cut flowers, ornamental plants, tree seedlings, medicinal plants or other plants in Alberta.
