Did you know our homes are responsible for 18% of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions? The Canada Greener Homes Grant can make where you live more energy-efficient. What does this mean for your home?
To qualify for this program, you need to follow the program guidelines carefully. We’ve taken the guesswork out of the process and simplified things for you.
Here’s a guide to how the program works:
Visit the Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate Plus website and sign up!
Before any work can begin, you need to have a registered energy auditor visit and evaluate your home. This fee is reimbursed by the government, up to $600.
Finding a Registered Energy Advisor in your area is as simple as providing your postal code to find one near you. They will take “before” pictures and provide you with expert advice on what energy saving retrofits make the most sense for your home.
Loan Amount: $5,000 – $40,000
Repayment term: 10 years, interest-free
Loan Type: Unsecured personal loan on approved credit
For more information, visit the Canada Greener Homes Loan website.
Contact Ottawa Homes Services to install your recommended HVAC retrofits. We’ll complete your HVAC retrofits and provide you with the documentation required to obtain your rebate.
The government requires that a post-retrofit evaluation be completed to obtain an accurate measure of energy saved and greenhouse gas emissions reduced as a result of the retrofits.
Submit all your required documents online via the Enbridge Gas website.
We hope this guide has helped you better understand the program and that you’ll join us in our effort to reduce carbon emissions. Steps like these will help Canada meet its climate change commitments and reach our goal of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
