You can now apply online

We’ve launched a new online application system for Good Energy rebates. Try it out and let us know if you run into any problems. Your feedback will help us continue to improve the system. You’ll find it linked below in the apply section.

Get an energy assessment

You can get a residential energy assessment to:

  • determine how energy efficient your house is;
  • get a recommendation on what you can do to save energy; and
  • become eligible for rebates from us and other organizations.

You must complete a residential energy assessment to qualify for a new home or insulation renovation rebate. This must be completed before building or renovating.

The same energy assessment is required for the Natural Resources Canada Greener Homes Grant. However, you will need to register separately with the Government of Canada.

How much does an energy assessment cost?

We have partnered with local energy advisors to offer these assessments at a reduced cost:

  • $50 for assessments to a new construction as required for our new home rebate; and
  • $50 for a pre-renovation assessment and $50 cost for a return visit required for our insulation rebate.

There may be additional costs for non-standard assessments.

Request an in-person residential energy assessment

Currently, there’s high demand for energy assessments. It could take several weeks to get an appointment.

New construction energy assessments

Getting an energy assessment of your new construction's plans is the 1st step in qualifying for the $10,000 new home rebate. The energy advisor will:

Examples of ways to meet the target:

  • increase levels of insulation;
  • optimize window type and placement; and
  • recover heat from drain water.

The 50% or 60% thermal energy targets can be challenging to achieve. But it will result in large energy cost savings. Specifically, when compared to a home built to the 2015 National Building Code standard.

Once the home construction is complete, you must schedule a return visit with an energy advisor. The advisor will:

  • complete a final blower door test;
  • confirm that the home was built as modelled; and
  • issue an EnerGuide label for your home.

Renovation energy assessments

Getting an energy assessment done before you start your renovations is the 1st step in qualifying for the insulation rebate.

The energy advisor will:

  • perform a blower door test to determine air leakage in the home;
  • walk through the home with you to identify air leakage areas;
  • discuss your renovation plans;
  • explain the types of renovations that will qualify for the insulation rebate;
  • create an energy model of your home; and
  • give you a renovation upgrade report:
    • based on modelled energy savings;
    • with their findings; and
    • renovation priorities.

You must schedule a return visit with the advisor. They will:

  • confirm the renovations were completed;
  • do a 2nd energy assessment; and
  • provide you with an insulation upgrade report.

You submit the report as part of the insulation rebate package.
