Save up to $10,000 with HER+ Program

Did you know that you could receive money when you upgrade your home with a new heat pump or replace your old thermostat? With the new Home Efficiency Rebate Plus Program (HER+), you can enjoy savings on your energy bills and receive rebates for eligible upgrades. Here's how it works:

  1. Get an energy assessment completed by a licensed Registered Energy Advisor.
  2. Receive a custom report with recommendations for eligible upgrades after the assessment is complete.
  3. Upgrade your home with at least one eligible improvement.
  4. Schedule a follow-up energy assessment, which can be conducted with the same Registered Energy Advisor from your initial assessment.
  5. Receive rebate cheques for your completed eligible upgrades, along with a $600 rebate for your energy assessments.

By following these steps, you'll not only make your home more energy-efficient but also save money on your bills. So why not take advantage of this opportunity and contact us to learn more about how the HER+ program can benefit you.

Is the Canada Greener Homes Grant the same as Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+) Program?

Starting from January 4, 2023, the Canada Greener Homes Grant is now known as Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+) and is being collaboratively delivered by Natural Resources Canada and Enbridge Gas throughout Ontario and Canada-Wide. The newly introduced rebate program provides up-to-date and considerably increased rebates for numerous home efficiency upgrades, such as space and water heating, weatherproofing, home insulation and more!

Homeowners who want to apply for the Canada Greener Homes Grant will now apply through the HER+ program and can potentially be considered for both initiatives. The collaborative delivery of this initiative through the Home Energy Efficiency Plus Program allows qualifying Ontario homeowners to reap the benefits of both programs while only needing to submit one application. Ontario homeowners who submitted their applications for the Canada Greener Homes Grant before January 4, 2023, are advised to continue managing their applications via the CGHG portal.

  • Enbridge Gas Customers with Tenants Residing in their Landlord-Owned Property
    Homes that use Enbridge Gas for heating but are not the primary residence of the owner and instead occupied with tenants.
