Home Efficiency Rebates

What is the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus?

Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+) is a rebate program launched by the Government of Canada and Enbridge Gas to encourage homeowners to make energy-efficient home upgrades. It works with the Canada Greener Homes Grant to benefit Ontario homeowners with one application for both programs.

The program provides rebates to eligible homeowners who make home retrofits that improve energy efficiency. The retrofits can include insulation, air sealing, windows, doors, and high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, among other upgrades.

The rebate program is designed to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make homes more energy-efficient while assisting homeowners to save money on their energy bills. The Home Efficiency Rebate Plus is available to homeowners in Ontario and provides rebates of up to $10,000 for eligible retrofits.
