The Government of Yukon is launching a new online system that streamlines applications for Good Energy rebates and incentives. The Good Energy E-rebates platform features the government’s energy efficient incentives for homeowners and residences, and Yukoners can now apply using the online platform.
The new system also offers a virtual energy assessment of homes. Yukoners enter basic information about their homes and the virtual assessment tool provides recommendations for increasing energy efficiency and decreasing energy costs and carbon emissions. The recommendations link to government’s Good Energy rebate offers.
This initiative supports the Yukon strategy for climate change, energy and a green economy: Our Clean Future.
The Good Energy Rebates are popular. These incentives play an important role in reducing Yukon’s greenhouse gas emissions and Yukoners want to be more energy efficient and reduce their carbon footprint. Now, using this new online system, Yukon families can quickly learn how to make their homes more energy efficient and access the government incentives. Every action counts.

The popular Good Energy Rebate program was created in 2007 to reduce energy consumption, energy costs and emissions in support of the Government of Yukon’s 2009 Energy Strategy for Yukon.
Over its lifetime, the Good Energy rebates have expanded from ENERGY STAR®-certified appliances to include energy efficient renovations to homes and buildings, clean transportation options, and renewable energy generating systems.
The E-rebates platform includes all the Good Energy rebates for homeowners, retrofits or upgrades to buildings and homes, purchasing clean transportation vehicle, and generating electricity from renewable energy sources.
The E-rebates project is partially funded by the Government of Canada’s Low Carbon Economy Fund.
