The saveONenergy HOME ASSISTANCE program helps qualified Ontario homeowners, tenants and social and/or assisted housing providers improve the energy efficiency of their homes.
Participating in the program can help reduce energy use, help manage energy costs and improve home comfort.
The energy efficiency and comfort of your home – or, if you are a social housing provider, your tenants’ homes – could be significantly improved through the installation of:
- energy-saving light bulbs
- a power bar
- a low-flow showerhead (in homes with electric water heating)
- faucet aerators (in homes with electric water heating)
You may also be eligible for a new, energy-efficient refrigerator or other appliance, such as a room air conditioner. If you are in an electrically heated home you may also be eligible for a programmable thermostat, weatherstripping around your doors and windows and additional insulation in your attic or basement.
The program includes a detailed in-home energy assessment, professional installation of energy-saving measures and advice on steps that can be taken to save even more energy.
All conservation devices and products provided under the HOME ASSISTANCE program are directly installed in the home and are free of charge to participants.
The HOME ASSISTANCE program is the first of its kind in Ontario, and will be made available through participating electric utilities.
