List of Energy Efficiency Rebates for Ontario Residents

March 22, 2023

Along with the Canada Greener Homes Grant and other Canada-wide energy efficiency rebates and grants, there are several grants and rebates available specifically for Ontario residents. These are designed to help reduce the cost of installing energy-saving retrofits and products in your home - from attic insulation to new doors & windows to ENERGYSTAR certified appliances, there are many ways to save when upgrading your home to be more efficient.

Ontario Home Efficiency Rebate Plus: up to $10,000

Effective January 2023, the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus makes the rebate application process easy for Ontario residents. It combines the application for the Home Efficiency Rebate through Enbridge Gas with the Canada Greener Home Grant all in one place. 

To be eligible for the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus, you need to live in Ontario and be a customer of Enbridge Gas. Your house should be detached, semi-detached, a row/townhome or a mobile home on a permanent foundation.

What’s Covered by the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus?

Maximum Rebate for Primary Residence of an Enbridge Gas Customer

Maximum Rebate for the Rental Unit of an Enbridge Gas Customer*

Maximum Rebate for a Non-Enbridge Gas Customer*

Home Energy Assessments




Home Insulation




Air Sealing




Windows & Doors (per rough opening)




Space and Water Heating

Solar PV Systems








* Based on responses to FAQs on eligibility criteria. Note: If a homeowner is going to sign up for service with Enbridge Gas in the near future they may be eligible for the full rebates covered under their program.

What if You’re not an Enbridge Customer?

If you aren’t an Enbridge Gas customer, you can still apply for the Home Efficiency rebate, but you will only be eligible for up to $5,000 in rebates through the Canada Greener Homes Grant.

Does the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus Cover Rental Properties?

If you own a rental property, and it is not your primary residence, you are still eligible for coverage through Enbridge. You will not be eligible for the federal Canada Greener Homes Grant portion, but if you are an Enbridge customer you can still receive up to $5,000 in rebates.
