The Home Efficiency Rebate Returns
June 29, 2020
Through the first few months of the year, many Ontario homeowners enjoyed the revamped and expanded Home Efficiency Rebate program from Enbridge Gas. It served as the best rebate program since the GreenON Rebate Program in 2017 for homeowners to receive money back for sustainable home upgrades and energy efficiency home renovations, including improved home insulation.
Unfortunately, on March 17, 2020, the Home Efficiency Rebate was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As of June 15, 2020, however, the program is returning, alongside some extensions, meaning that homeowners can again receive up to $5,000 in Ontario rebates for home retrofit renovations. This offering of up to $5,000 includes $550 in rebates for the required pre- and post-work energy audits that a Registered Energy Advisor must complete to qualify for rebates. As always, Great Northern Insulation can guide you through the rebate process from start to finish.
Below is an overview of how the Home Efficiency Rebate looks as of its return on June 15, 2020.

The Ontario Home Efficiency Rebate Program Reopens June 15, 2020
Many Ontarians have found themselves spending far more time at home as we attempt to coordinate together to flatten the curve and protect against the COVID-19 pandemic. It should come as no surprise, then, that many are finding their home is not as energy efficient as they may have once thought!
The COVID-19 pandemic has made it very clear how important our homes are. It’s impossible to have home comfort without an efficient, up-to-date home, and the Enbridge Gas Home Efficiency Rebate is the perfect solution to low-cost home efficiency retrofit upgrades.
Extensions of Limited Time Offers for the Home Efficiency Rebate
On January 1, 2020, Enbridge introduced some Limited Time Offer bonus rebate packages to the Home Efficiency Rebate. Despite being planned to conclude before June 2020, Enbridge Gas has decided to extend the Limited Time Offer rebate packages to August 31, 2020. These Limited Time Offer bonus rebates package together the most popular and essential home efficiency upgrades, and offer a bonus rebate amount, making them far and away the most exciting home renovation rebate offers available in Ontario.
