If you're finding you're using too much energy in your house and that your usage is affecting your bills, the Alberta Government has brought back a program that might be of interest to you.

The instant rebate campaign through Energy Efficiency Alberta has started up again this fall. Darlene Crowell is with Energy Efficiency Alberta.

"It's the same products we had in the spring that were wildly successful with Albertans. It's going to run for four weeks, so up until the end of October," explained Crowell. "The program is running with 600 retailers across the province, including three great ones across Drumheller, including the Canadian Tire, the Co-op and Wal-Mart."

The spring campaign saw Albertans save over $14 million on 4 million products, including LED light bulbs, light controls, programmable thermostats, and faucet aerators.

"I think Albertans know we're bracing for some colder winter months coming, so the things we're really talking about are outdoor timers, for things like block heaters and holiday lights," elaborated Crowell. "But, they also have some great savings on programmable thermostats [and] those popular LED lights."

Qualifying for the savings is easy, said Crowell.

"They just go to one of the participating retailers. Products have instant savings on them right in the store and it'll be taken off at the til. So, there's no rebate to mail in -- this is just instant savings."

In addition to the instant savings, Energy Efficiency Alberta is running a Home Improvement Rebate program where residents can save money on insulation, windows and tankless water heaters by using a participating Alberta contractor.

The in-store, instant rebate program runs until Oct. 29.
