Energy Efficiency Alberta has introduced a new rebate program the Home Energy Plan (HEP). Offering financial rebates to eligible homeowners for energy efficient renovations. With the Home Energy Plan, you are eligible for higher rebates than the old rebate program. An opportunity to redeem a $1000 bonus rebate. More rebate options such as furnaces and boilers. The opportunity to do the upgrades yourself and a $300 rebate towards the Home Energy Evaluation. This is a great opportunity to get an EnerGuide Home Evaluation at a significant discount.
Here is how the home energy plan program works:
The first step is to book an appointment with one of our registered Energy Advisor to get a pre-an EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluation. The assessment must be prior to starting any upgrades and/or any demolition. A $300 rebate will be applied instantly to our invoice for the evaluation so no waiting for the rebate!
Step two, our Energy Advisor will come visit your home to perform comprehensive energy assessment of your home which includes:
The building envelope, HVAC systems, water heater, blower door test (assess air tightness of your home and identify air leakage location), depressurization test: when required (combustion spillage safety check)
Step three, the energy advisor will provide you with a custom certified ERS report, a recommended upgrade report with potential energy savings and an EnerGuide label for your home. The report will be available on a secure portal 2-3 weeks after your Evaluation. It will detail energy efficiency upgrades and applicable rebates. This will help you plan and track your renovations.
Step four, completing the recommended energy efficiency renovations. Here there are two ways of going about it. There is a prescriptive path “Common upgrades” and a performance path “Custom upgrades”
Step five, receiving the rebates. With the Home Energy Plan, you receive rebates on both common upgrades, as well as custom upgrades as follows * (Eligibility requirements apply. Please refer to Energy Efficiency Alberta HEP guide for list of eligible upgrades.)
