How does it work?

Follow these simple steps:

1. Complete your EnerGuide* Home Energy Evaluation

  • Choose an Energy Advisor and schedule your Home Energy Evaluation. We recommend getting at least two quotes as rates may vary.
  • A $300 rebate will be applied directly to your Home Energy Evaluation invoice.
  • Your Energy Advisor will assess your home from top to bottom and work with you to determine what energy-efficient upgrades are best for your home.

2. Get your custom home report

  • Your home report will be available through an online portal at homeenergyplan.ca 2-3 weeks after your Home Energy Evaluation is completed.
  • The report will show you where the best savings are in your home and will list all available energy efficiency rebates.
  • Use your home report to select eligible upgrades such as furnaces, insulation and windows.

3. Complete the recommended upgrades and get your rebate

  • Once renovations are complete, apply for a rebate:
    • If you used a participating contractor from our E Pro Network, the contractor will submit your rebate application on your behalf (for qualifying “common upgrades” only). See the Program Guide for full details.
    • If you used a non-participating contractor or completed the renovations yourself, a post-renovation Home Energy Evaluation is required to determine the energy savings prior to applying for your rebate.

4. Bonus rebates

  • Schedule your Home Energy Evaluation today and receive an additional $1,000 rebate when you complete three or more eligible upgrades.
