About HAT Smart
The HAT Smart program seeks to prepare Medicine Hat residents for a fossil fuel constrained world by assisting in energy conservation and renewable energy initiatives.
The program offers incentives for Medicine Hat utility customers to make better choices regarding upgrades to their home, as well as education and community support initiatives.
The HAT Smart program was launched following the unveiling of the Community Environmental Roadmap in 2008. Members of the community representing an array of groups and interests created targets related to seven key environmental areas: land/surface, renewable energy, energy conservation, water conservation, water quality, waste and recycling and air quality. HAT Smart is the City of Medicine Hat's contribution to supporting the goals related to the energy-related targets.
HAT Smart receives its program funding through the Energy Conservation Charge, which is levied upon high-consumption electric and gas utility customers.See below for reports conveying details related to HAT Smart's programming since its inception.
