How to Participate
Step 1: Register
Complete the online registration form. Select the Service Organization of your choice. If you have no preference, one will be assigned for you at random.
Step 2: Have your building plans modeled by a Certified Energy Advisor (CEA)
After registering, you will be contacted to begin the process of modeling and evaluating your plans. A program fee ($99+ HST) is required before modeling begins. You can expect your building plans to be modeled within three to four weeks of the date of your registration.
Step 3: Consult with your Certified Energy Advisor on ways to make your home more energy efficient
Based on your building plans, your energy advisor will provide recommendations to improve the energy efficiency of your new home. These recommendations will include changes to your plans to meet at least one of the incentive levels offered through this program.
Step 4: Build your home to meet one of the incentive levels
You have 12 months to complete the construction of your home from the date of your registration in the program. Talk with your Certified Energy Advisor and review the Program Guidelines about what receipts or product stickers you should save.
Step 5: Complete an On-Site Energy Evaluation of your home
Once your home is ready for an On-Site Energy Evaluation, contact your Service Organization to schedule the evaluation.
Shortly after your On Site Energy Evaluation, you will receive an EnerGuide label showing the modeled energy consumption of your home.
Step 6: Receive your incentive
We are now offering customers a direct deposit option for all incentives, making it quick and easy for you to receive your payment! Please note: Business customers previously set up for direct deposit of incentives are not required to re-submit a direct deposit enrolment form unless there has been a change in banking information.
Payments are made by cheque and are usually received within six to eight weeks of your On Site Energy Evaluation.
