Durham Region is partnering with the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) to launch the Towards Net Zero Renovations Project. The project is seeking 10 to 15 participants in Durham who want to upgrade their home to Net Zero Energy or Net Zero Energy Ready. Net Zero Energy homes are known for their improved comfort, indoor air quality as well as noise reductions and durability, while reducing energy loads/costs and associated greenhouse gas emissions. Participant benefits include:
1. Expert guidance from a CHBA Qualified Net Zero Energy Advisor, who will work with your renovator to optimize your retrofit project for performance and cost. This represents up to a $4,000 value over the course of the project. This is in addition to the Deep Retrofit Rebates available under the Durham Greener Homes Program.
2. Renovators, trades and other key retrofit stakeholders get access to industry leading building science training and both the CHBA Net Zero Builder and Renovator Training courses at no cost ,valued at approximately $2,500.

In Ontario the Canada Greener Homes rebates and the provincial rebates have been combined into the Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+)
This means Ontario residents will no longer sign-up for the Canada Greener Homes rebates through the federal government's web-portal, but rather with Enbridge Gas through the NRCan Registered Energy Advisor you choose to do the required EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluation of your home.
This new rebate structure streamlines the process by combining both the federal Greener Homes incentives with the Ontario incentives. Through the combined incentives, you can get up to $10,000 in cash-back rebates, plus an additional rebate of up to $600 for the required EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluations.
