Empower Me is an award-winning energy conservation and behaviour change program aimed at members of diverse, multilingual communities. It is a peer-to-peer program, delivered in communities, and in language.
Empower Me helps participants understand energy bills and choices, save energy, save money, and increase the comfort and safety of their homes. Empower Me is one of the only energy conservation programs that both guides and measures behaviour change, while providing coaching on upgrading energy saving measures.
This is possible through a peer-to-peer learning model that leverages community connections by working with trusted peers. Empower Me’s energy conservation program has reached thousands of homes and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by more than 14,000 tonnes since 2012. That’s a proven reduction of 6.5 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per home.
