January 30, 2023 – Enbridge Gas Inc.—along with Natural Resources Canada and the Province of Ontario—have officially launched co-delivery of the Canada Greener Homes Grant through a single window to all eligible Ontarians via Enbridge Gas’ enhanced Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+) program.

The Government of Ontario recommended Enbridge Gas to the Government of Canada as the co-delivery partner for the Canada Greener Homes Grant in the province, says the utility. This collaboration, says Enbridge, will enable “more efficient program delivery for Ontarians”.

“The delivery of the Greener Homes Grant in Ontario with Enbridge Gas takes advantage of existing infrastructure to rapidly deploy cost- and climate-saving retrofits across the province while simplifying the process for residents,” said Jonathan Wilkinson, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources.

Ontarians are encouraged to visit the website for program details, eligibility criteria, and to learn how to apply.

Through the HER+ program, rebates are provided toward the cost of eligible retrofits such as home insulation, windows, doors, and renewable energy systems to help Ontarians optimize energy savings in their homes.

Eligible Ontarians can receive Canada Greener Homes grants of up to $5000 and current eligible Enbridge Gas customers can apply for up to $5000 more funded by Enbridge Gas, for a combined total of up to $10,000.

“The enhanced HER+ program is an excellent example of governments and utilities working together to deliver programs that are complementary and coordinated in order to streamline processes and maximize benefits to participants,” said Michele Harradence, president, Enbridge Gas Inc.

Additionally, participants can offset the cost of their EnerGuide home assessment with a rebate of up to $600.

The Province of Ontario joins Quebec and Nova Scotia, who already have co-delivery agreements.
