We are proud to be one of only two provinces to have partnered with Natural Resources Canada to deliver the Canada Greener Homes Grant on the federal government’s behalf. In Nova Scotia, the Canada Greener Homes Grant will be co-delivered with Efficiency Nova Scotia’s Home Energy Assessment service, meaning anyone who enrolls in the service will automatically be registered for the federal grant. Administering the Canada Greener Homes Grant through Efficiency Nova Scotia makes it easy for Nova Scotians to take advantage of up to $5,000 in grants offered through the program. In addition to providing this one-stop point of access for financial support, Nova Scotians also benefit from having access to Efficiency Nova Scotia’s expertise and additional rebate support. We are excited to be able to help make investing in energy efficiency even more affordable, to even more Nova Scotians.
Nova Scotians have embraced solar as part of the immediate action required to address the climate crisis. The SolarHomes service helps Nova Scotians harness the sun’s energy by offering rebates on approved solar solar photovoltaic (PV) systems.
From the numbers, Nova Scotians appear equally excited to participate in a program that enables them to lower their energy costs and do their part to fight climate change. In just 10 months, over 10,000 Nova Scotians have registered for the Greener Homes Grant Program.
This increase in interest in Home Energy Assessments, as a result of the Canada Greener Homes Grant, could have presented capacity challenges, but our partner companies rose to the challenge and quickly began to hire and train to meet the incredible demand from Nova Scotians.
Our On-site Energy Managers (OEMs) are trained energy efficiency professionals who work with large energy users, including Municipalities, to identify and lead viable energy efficiency projects.
