Why We Exist
Every winter, Beryl dreads paying her utility bills. The cost of heat and electricity can spike during the coldest months and she often has to pay what she can on installments. All One Sky visited Beryl in her Calgary home, and coordinated with the City of Calgary’s Senior Services to install new windows, doors and energy efficient appliances to help reduce her bills and make her more comfortable.
Beryl is one of the beneficiaries of Energy Angels, our first grassroots program to help low-income Calgary seniors become more energy efficient. All One Sky Foundation grew out of the former Climate Change Central (C3), the Alberta agency set up to help Albertans cope with a changing climate. We established All One Sky to address the cracks we missed in C3: energy poverty and adaptation to climate change. While C3 was closed in 2014, All One Sky has continued to provide climate research, education and programs to Albertans.
Since 2010, we have helped thousands of Albertans make their homes more energy efficient, prepare municipalities with climate risk action plans, and help individuals reduce their impact on a changing climate.
