Residents have less than two weeks to register for the Canada Greener Homes Grant (CGHG) and SaskEnergy and SaskPower are encouraging their customers to apply today. Registration is free and once registered and approved, a place in the program will be reserved for homeowners to advance on their retrofits.
The program stacks with the Crowns’ Home Efficiency Retrofit Rebate (HERR). People who have already registered for the programs are still able to access the rebates over time.
“We encourage all SaskEnergy and SaskPower customers to maximize existing opportunities to affordably upgrade the energy efficiency of their homes,” said Dustin Duncan, Minister Responsible for SaskEnergy.
The programs provide eligible homeowners with rebates to be used towards upgrading their home’s insulation, air-sealing, windows, and doors. The CGHG provides rebates up to $5,000 for home retrofits and $600 to put toward home energy audits.
The HERR offers customers additional rebates up to $1,800 towards optimizing their home’s energy use. An additional $200 is available to subsidize the cost of having an EnerGuide advisor evaluate the home before and after the upgrades are installed – a requirement of the CGHG.
For homeowners not ready to undertake retrofits due to affordability, the Canada Greener Homes Loan may be an option. Approved grant recipients could get up to $40,000 interest-free with a repayment period of up to 10 years.
