EnerGuide Energy Evaluation

Greener Homes Grant

The Canada Greener Homes Grant is providing up to 700,000 grants of up to $5,000 to homeowners making energy efficient retrofits to their homes.

Not all renovations are covered under this program, ensure that your renovation plans are covered in their list of eligible retrofits.

Successfully completing at least one eligible grant in the Federal program as well as a pre and post energy evaluation will qualify you for an a $600 top-up to help pay for energy evaluation services. 

In BC the existing CleanBC Better Homes BC program offers additional opportunities for homeowners. On top of your federal rebate you may qualify for up to $14,000 in additional rebates with two bonus rebates available for completing two or more qualifying upgrades. 

To qualify for the federal program the home must be your primary residence and in serviceable condition (ie any ongoing renovations can only affect the interior of the home). Take a look at full eligibility requirements here.

What does this mean for your renovation? More resources from the federal government to pay for high efficiency retrofits. The grant value of each upgrade is in addition to CleanBC's existing rebate program but the conditions and applications must be met independently. Read more about CleanBC rebates below.

Don't miss out on thousands in rebates, get your EnerGuide evaluation before starting your renovation.
