ecoENERGY Retrofit – Homes Program

Residential couple

The ecoENERGY Retrofit – Homes program provides grants up to $5,000 to help homeowners make their homes more energy-efficient and reduce the burden of high energy costs. The Government of Canada has renewed the program from June 6, 2011, until March 31, 2012.

How the Program Works

To be eligible for upcoming retrofits, new participants and past participants must first obtain a registration number. If you are not sure which form to complete or if you need assistance, follow the instructions at the register page.

All participants require a pre-retrofit evaluation (since April 2007) before starting renovations, a post-retrofit evaluation and a signed grant application form by March 31, 2012. Participants must present all retrofit receipts at the post-retrofit evaluation. New participants are only eligible for product purchased on or after June 6, 2011, and installed after a pre-retrofit evaluation. Past participants are only eligible for products purchased and installed on or after June 6, 2011.

The Grant Table offers an overview of the program and a breakdown of eligible upgrades. Visit the Frequently-Asked Questions page for more details and contact information.
