Home Reno Rebates
New! Electrically heated homes now eligible!
More incentives now for all homes
The existing Home Reno Rebate program now includes homes heated by electricity. So now all individually heated dwellings can qualify for rebates on energy efficient upgrades such as adding insulation, upgrading a furnace, replacing windows or doors or a few other categories.
In addition for homes heated by natural gas, oil, propane or wood, homeowners can receive $500 towards the installation of an Air Source Heat Pump that is installed as a secondary heating source.
Specifically for electrically heated homes, there are much deeper incentives for homeowners to move to Air Source Heat Pumps as their primary heating source.
All homes are also now eligible to receive rebates for buying Energy Star appliances (fridge, freezer, dishwasher, dehumidifier and window air conditioners) if they are completing energy efficient upgrades in 2 or more categories (insulation, furnaces, windows or doors, etc.). Also the homeowner will be able to apply for the Heating and Cooling Incentive for a new gas furnace replacement and the installation of an air conditioner.
Get up to $5,000 back when you renovate!
All individually heated homes in Ontario qualify
If you own a single family dwelling (house, semi-detached or townhouse) or a duplexed house, you can receive up to $5,000 in home reno rebates for upgrades that improve energy efficiency!
While the program is operated by Union Gas in partnership with Save on Energy and the Province of Ontario’s Green Ontario Fund, it is open to homeowners using any type of heat source. In Waterloo Region, it also means that Kitchener Utilities customers are eligible.

Home energy evaluations included in rebates
Your rebate includes up to $600 towards completing the mandatory initial and follow-up evaluations. So if you make upgrades in at least 2 categories, you get 100% of your evaluation costs back.
Even better, as a charity, Reep Green Solutions is not required to charge HST.
Special price for Kitchener Utilities Customers
If you are a Kitchener Utilities customer, it offers its customers a subsidy for this service. If that includes you, the special price is $500 for both evaluations. Since the rebate covers the complete cost of this service, you get the expertise of a Reep Green Solutions Certified Energy Advisor to guide your home energy upgrades with no additional charges.
Together, we are making an impact!
