Our work centers on the design and delivery of equitable programming for traditionally underrepresented communities, including lower-income households, immigrants and newcomers, and Indigenous peoples. With decades of design, management, and consulting expertise, we help utilities, governments, and other industry partners achieve their equity and program participation goals.
We offer consulting and advisory services to utilities, governments, and Industry partners who want to build equity into their programming. From community engagement to program design, our team has extensive experience offering recommendations on how to design and improve programming with a focus on equity.
As a program implementer who has worked with thousands of underserved households, our recommendations are based on real-world needs and our team’s on-the-ground experience.
Our expansive portfolio includes energy conservation, weatherization, clean mobility, and decarbonization projects. Our relationships with underserved communities also span the Pacific Northwest, ensuring our work is culturally sensitive and informed by a diversity of perspectives.
With decades of experience designing, delivering, and managing community-centric energy and housing programs, our team offers program management services to ensure new programs are delivered efficiently and are positioned for long-term success.
From feasibility analyses and operations to stakeholder relations and program management, our team delivers strategic and inclusive initiatives on behalf of utilities, governments, and other Industry partners.
Engaging community in genuine conversations enhances the effectiveness of new programs and services. When communities struggle to see themselves benefiting from a program, their investment and participation can remain low.
We leverage existing relationships in addition to building new ones, to help our clients better understand the unique needs of the communities they strive to serve.
Kambo takes a multilingual, culturally sensitive approach to community engagement. We hire community leaders to act as trusted liaisons and cultural advisors.
Our history and knowledge of the industry have spurred the development and delivery of three unique multi-award-winning programs that address critical gaps in the market: Empower Me, Community Power, and the Home Upgrades Program. Each program features a unique menu of services ranging from energy education to housing assessments and construction support.
Empower Me is designed to support marginalized communities often underserved by traditional programming. Through community-led workshops, multilingual education, and custom coaching services, the program empowers participants to better understand their relationship with energy and their homes. This multi-award-winning program helps traditionally underserved households identify opportunities to save energy and money, reduce their environmental footprint, and improve the comfort, safety, and affordability of their homes. Empower Me programming currently offers in-language support in over a dozen languages.
Community Power supports Indigenous Nations to build, upgrade, and maintain homes that are safe, comfortable, healthy, and efficient. With a dedicated team of energy and housing specialists, Community Power strives to reduce energy poverty and improve housing conditions by supporting communities to secure capital for energy and housing upgrades, and by offering a range of critical services, including housing assessments and construction partnership support.
The Home Upgrades Program is a residential energy retrofit program designed to help Albertans improve affordability and reduce their energy consumption by providing fully subsidized energy retrofits and energy education. The program offers varying levels of support, products, and installations depending on the needs of the home, and how difficult it is for a household to pay their energy bills.
