How can energy-smart upgrades help you save?

There are three simple ways that outfitting your home with energy savings upgrades can help you save:

  1. Save money now.

Improve the energy efficiency of your home and get up to $2500 of your renovation costs back

  1. Save money later

Increased energy efficiency will decrease your energy bill up to 20% every year

  1. Increase the value of your home

An energy-efficient home is more attractive to future buyers

* Note: The maximum $5,000 rebate includes up to $500 energy assessments. You pay the HST on the cost of the assessments.
