Combined federal and provincial incentives including Canada Greener Homes
Get over $10,000 in Cash-back Rebates
Program closed due to a Federal lapse of funding
The Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+) program has been closed as of February 5, 2024, due to a Federal lapse of funding. Because of this, we are unable to enter new applicants for participation in the HER+ program.
We do continue to schedule pre-retrofit EnerGuide evaluations for enrollment in the Canada Greener Homes Loan program alongside municipal loans and incentives. Additionally, post-retrofit evaluations to claim rebates for completed work also continue.
The Government of Canada intends to establish a next phase in their Canada Greener Homes Initiative. More information can be found in their news release. If you would like to express your concern in the closure of home energy incentives, consider sending a letter to the Federal government.
Frequently asked questions
Why is Enbridge Gas no longer accepting new applicants for HER+ ?
Given the high demand for the program and the number of households that have participated, Enbridge has filled all available spots earlier than expected with regard to the joint funding between Enbridge Gas and the Canada Greener Homes Grant.
I have already completed my pre-retrofit energy assessment, does this update impact me?
No, if you have already completed your pre-retrofit energy assessment by February 5, 2024, this does not impact you. Your pre-retrofit energy assessment should already be documented in our system.
What if my pre-retrofit energy assessment is scheduled after February 5, 2024?
Currently, Enbridge is only accepting pre-retrofit energy assessments completed on or before February 5, 2024. If you have a pre-retrofit energy assessment scheduled after February 5, 2024, you do not qualify for HER+ rebates as it is past the cut-off date.
How does this update to the HER+ program intake affect Canada Greener Homes Loan applications?
There is no impact to Canada Greener Homes Loan applications. Homeowners who wish to participate in the program can still book a home energy evaluation with us, which is required in order to create a loan application.
