Home Energy Upgrades
What are the qualifying home energy upgrades?
To be eligible up to $5,000 Enbridge incentive, you must complete at least 2 of the following upgrades to your home and achieve a minimum of 10% natural gas savings and use natural gas as your primary heating source. Speak with your energy advisor to learn about meeting this savings metric.
Customers who complete more than two upgrades also qualify for a $250 bonus for each additional upgrade installed—up to a maximum of $5,000.
