2020 Homeowner Incentives up to $5,000
Get money back now to improve your home for tomorrow. Making renovations and energy upgrades to your home provides significant return on your investment:
Money back in your pocket – qualify for up to $5,000 back in incentives for installing energy efficient upgrades.
Lower energy bills – save money on your annual energy bills by installing energy efficient upgrades.
Increase home comfort – upgrades make your home warmer during winter and cooler in the summer.
To participate in the Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate program, you must meet the following requirements:
- Complete a minimum of two or more qualifying upgrades
- Heat your home using a natural gas furnace or boiler
- Own a detached or semi-detached house, mobile home, or row townhouse
- Complete an initial and final home energy assessment with a Registered Energy Advisor (REA) before and after upgrades are made
- All work and assessments must be completed within 120 days of initial assessment
In just 3 steps, you can get money back and a more efficient home:
Step 1 – Contact a Registered Energy Advisor (REA) to pre-qualify you for your initial home energy assessment.
Contact GreenUP: 705-745-3238 ext. 222. One of the many available REAs will take the time to pre-qualify you over the phone before your initial home energy assessment is booked. An initial home energy assessment is an evaluation of your home’s current energy use. The evaluation will reveal areas where you can make improvements or retrofits, that will enhance your home’s energy efficiency, helping you to conserve energy and save money. GreenUP has an approved REA that can conduct your initial and final assessments.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
- EVALUATION: You’ll get a basement-to-attic assessment of your home’s insulation, heating and cooling systems and other energy use.
- TESTING: A blower door test will be conducted to see if your home has air leakage, which can cause wasted energy, uncomfortable drafts and poor air quality.
- GET YOUR RATING: Your home will be given an energy rating using the Natural Resources Canada home evaluation – the higher the rating the better.
- RETROFITS: During your home energy assessment, you’ll get recommendations for improvements, or retrofits to help reduce your energy bills and increase home comfort.
- RECOMMENDATION: Your recommended improvements may include heating and insulation, so it’s best to book your home energy evaluation before the winter heating season.
Step 2 – Successfully complete at least two qualifying upgrades
Step 3 – Complete a home post audit with the same Registered Energy Advisor.
A final home energy assessment allows you to compare your home’s new improved energy efficiency with your initial evaluation that was conducted prior to your upgrades or retrofits being installed. You can receive up to $5,000 for completing a minimum of 2 qualifying energy upgrades.
The final home energy assessment takes 1-2 hours and must take place within 120 days of your initial home energy assessment. Your REA will then submit your paperwork to Enbridge, and you’ll receive your incentive cheque by mail within 8-12 weeks.
The cost for your initial and final home energy assessments is $600+HST. Once you have successfully completed both assessments, you’ll receive $550 back to cover the majority of the assessment costs as part of your total incentive cheque.
