Saving energy saves you money – Get up to $5000 in grants for geothermal heat pump installations
If you haven’t heard the great news already, on June 4 the Canadian government made an announcement regarding the availability of a residential grant program for energy efficient upgrades to existing homes. Of course geothermal heat pumps are a part of that program and qualifying for rebates is straightforward.
What’s available through the initiative?
Participants are eligible for up to $5,600 under the initiative. This includes up to $600 to cover the cost of having a EnerGuide home energy advisor complete both pre-retrofit and post-retrofit audits, and $3000 for a geothermal heat pump replacement or $5000 for a new geothermal heat pump installation.
Note: Check Canada Greener Homes Website for complete details and check back frequently for updates.
What is the process?
- Homeowner books an energy advisor for a pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation (residents of Quebec and Nova Scotia need to apply directly through their provincial programs to book their EnerGuide evaluation)
- Contractor completes geothermal heat pump replacement or new installation. Once installation is complete, provide customer with invoice and the two completed attestation forms
- Homeowner books their energy advisor for post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation
