Rebates From Union Gas And Enbridge Gas Can Help Reduce Your Energy Bills

August 16, 2018

If you’re looking to take advantage of what the Union Gas and Enbridge Gas rebate programs offer, you’re about to conserve energy and save on seasonal utilities. Both Union Gas and Enbridge Gas are making it easier and more affordable for homeowners to make home energy upgrades. These upgrades include insulation, windows, doors, water heaters, HVAC systems, and more. And it starts by having an energy evaluation.

Home Energy Conservation Program (Enbridge Gas)

With Union Gas and Enbridge Gas rebates, the homeowner must work alongside a Registered Energy Advisor. The Energy Advisor will conduct pre- and post-retrofit energy evaluations. These evaluations are required to participate in either program, and open you up to receiving additional rebates. You also receive a beneficial EnerGuide report from the final evaluation, so you know exactly what to expect from all of the work that was done.

 To be eligible, Enbridge Gas requires that at least two energy upgrades be performed. Here, the Energy Advisor will help identify the upgrades that will deliver the best return-on-investment. Insulation retrofits that deliver the best results include basement insulation, exterior wall insulation, attic insulation, and air sealing - although, air sealing is dependent on the the pre- and post-energy evaluations and are more of a benefit from having insulation professionally installed. Always ask the insulation company you choose whether or not air sealing is a part of the insulation package. The idea is to create meaningful energy efficiency improvements once retrofits are complete.

The Home Reno Rebate Program (from Union Gas)

Both Union Gas and Enbridge Gas rebates are designed to incentivize home energy upgrades. The result is improved home energy that actually saves you money on electric bills. With Union Gas, the Home Reno Rebate Program offsets the cost of specific "energy smart upgrades". Depending on the amount of work undertaken, property owners could qualify for up to $5,000. To begin with, a Registered Energy Advisor must do a pre-retrofit evaluation. You will receive an outline of what upgrades will get you the best results according to your budget.

Based on the audit, the homeowner must complete at least two of these "energy smart upgrades". After the work is complete, the Energy Advisor will do another evaluation. The final report is used provides valuable information on how your home consumes energy. After the work has been completed and the paperwork submitted, a rebate cheque is made available within 60 days of being approved.

Other incentive/rebate programs are also available

In the City of Toronto, the Home Energy Loan Program provides financing to help homeowners make upgrades on aging furnaces or old insulation. These types of upgrades serve to reduce energy consumption, improve home comfort, and reduce seasonal utility bills for the long term. For some homeowners, these retrofits would be prohibitive without the financing assistance.

Another program, the Investment in Affordable Housing for Ontario, is an initiative to improve general access to affordable housing. The program ends on March 31, 2020, and applicants are required to contact the Municipal Housing Department in their municipality to determine their specific eligibility for funding. There are certain geographic areas that are targeted for funding.

Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) funds a program called Green Home. It is designed to promote home energy efficiency, and applicants must buy, build, or renovate while financing through Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. Essentially, the program seeks to promote home energy efficiency, but is also focused on making energy upgrades more affordable.

When home energy upgrades are out of reach, Ontario’s AffordAbility Fund may be the answer. Here, the local electric utility works with local community services to offer free energy-saving upgrades designed to lessen energy use and reduce the electricity bill. Free upgrades include such things as insulation retrofits and weather-stripping (available to both renters and owners).
