How To Access New Energy Efficiency Rebates
Upgrading your windows and doors with energy-efficient products can reduce your energy consumption and enhance the comfort of your home. To help you do this, the province of Ontario joined Enbridge Gas for the co-delivery of the Canada Greener Homes Initiative. All eligible Ontarians can access the new single portal via Enbridge Gas’s enhanced Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+) program.
Here’s what you need to know to take advantage of these enhanced rebates:
What changes have been made to the Canada Greener Homes Initiative?
- New applicants in Ontario must apply through the Enbridge Gas Home Energy Rebate Plus program (HER+) to be considered for both the provincial grant program (HER+) and the federal grant initiative, the Canada Greener Homes Grant.
- Ontario homeowners who applied for the Canada Greener Homes Grant before January 4, 2023, can continue using the Canada Greener Homes Grant portal to make changes to their application, send or receive documents, or request funding.
- The co-delivery of this program through the HER+ in Ontario will allow more homeowners to be eligible to access the benefits of both programs through a single application and streamlined process, regardless of their home heating fuel type.
