Getting bonus rebates

The more qualifying upgrades you make the more efficient your home will be. That's why we're offering you a choice between the $300 Two Upgrade Bonus or the Home Energy Improvement Bonus based on your home's total gigajoule improvement after three or more qualifying upgrades.

Two Upgrade Bonus – $300

Install any two eligible home upgrades and receive a $300 bonus.

  • If applying for both rebates together, application must be submitted within six months of the invoice date of the first bonus-eligible upgrade.
  • If applying for rebates as you go, apply for the first rebate within six months of completing the first bonus-eligible upgrade, and complete both the first and second eligible upgrade within 18 months of each other.
  • Submit your bonus application within six months of the invoice date of the second eligible upgrade.

Home Energy Improvement Bonus – up to $2,000

Complete three bonus-eligible upgrades and receive $20 per % gigajoule improvement in your home's EnerGuide report. Maximum rebate is $2,000.

  • Step 1: Complete your pre-upgrade EnerGuide home evaluation with a program qualified home energy advisor.
  • Step 2: Complete your three or more eligible upgrades. You have 18 months from your pre- evaluation to complete all three upgrades.
  • Step 3: Complete your post-upgrade EnerGuide home evaluation to establish your home's new EnerGuide rating.

An EnerGuide home evaluation provides a customized in-home assessment of your home's energy use and provides access to additional rebates.

Performed by an energy advisor licensed by Natural Resources Canada, this evaluation gives you a comprehensive look at your home's energy performance and establishes EnerGuide label rating for your home. It will help you make decisions and prioritize which upgrades will save you on energy costs and make your home more comfortable.
