How do I get my incentives?

Follow these 4 steps to get your incentive

1) Before starting any renovations, please click here to pre-qualify for the Program and book your pre-audit with one of our Registered Energy Advisors (REA)

A Registered Energy Advisor is an independent third party who will advise you on upgrades and help you make sure you meet the qualifications for the program.

2) Have your Register Energy advisor complete a pre-energy audit

The energy advisor will conduct a basement-to-attic assessment of your home’s current energy use and generate a customized report to explain which upgrades can improve your home’s energy efficiency. The pre-renovation assessment takes about two to three hours. When you complete the program, you’ll be reimbursed $600 as part of your incentive cheque for the cost of the audits, which covers the full amount; minus the HST on the cost of the pre and post audit.

3) Complete at least TWO of the eligible home energy upgrades

We recommend you get at least three quotes before selecting a reputable contractor for renovations. Have a Technical Standards & Safety Authority (TSSA) registered contractor perform any equipment installations.

4) Contact your Registered Energy Advisor to complete your post-energy audit

Your second assessment will take about one to two hours and must be completed within 120 days of your first assessment. This assessment will show you exactly how much difference your energy efficiency upgrades made. Your advisor will collect and submit all the necessary paperwork to Enbridge Gas. You will get your incentive cheque within 8-10 weeks.

NOTE:

To qualify for the Home Energy Conservation (HEC) program:

  1. The homeowner agrees he/she will not participate in any other gas or building envelope program (s) offered by parties outside of Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc., between the Initial Audit and the Final Audit.
  2. The homeowner confirms he/she has not applied for, nor will apply in the future for, rebates/ incentives from other energy efficiency/conservation programs (including GreenON) for the same qualifying energy efficiency improvements for which the homeowner is eligible to receive incentives through the HEC Program.

Enbridge Incentive:

Get up to $5,000 back by installing two or more eligible measures.

Note: there is a charge of $600+ hst for our pre and post audit. You will receive $600 back on your final incentive cheque to cover the cost of the audits.
