The government of Canada has launched a new program that offers Canadians grants of up to $5,000 to pay for energy-saving home upgrades.
Homeowners will be able to receive grants of up to $5,000 to make energy efficient retrofits to their primary residences, and up to $600 to help with the cost of home energy evaluations.
How does the Program work?
1. Schedule a home energy assessment
Before starting any work, you must first complete a home energy assessment with a registered energy advisor.
2. Get a custom report with recommended upgrades
After your home energy assessment, your registered energy advisor will provide a report with a list of recommended upgrades to help lower your hydro bill and make your home more energy efficient. You can will then apply here for the rebates
3. Complete the renewable energy upgrades
Get in touch with one of the Deltacron Energy experts for a custom solar pv grid tied or offgrid system design and competitive estimate. Once our team finishes the installation, then you will need to schedule another energy assessment.
4. Schedule a follow-up energy assessment
You must complete a final home energy assessment to qualify for rebates. The follow-up visit takes about one hour and must take place within 120 days of your first visit.
5. Receive your rebate cheque within 12 weeks
You’ll also be reimbursed $600* for your energy assessments. This will be included in your final cheque.
