COVID-19 Information: New Brunswickers can continue to benefit from our residential and business energy efficiency programs. The Community Outreach Program remains on hold to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Our employees and contractors follow pandemic operational plans aligned with Public Health to keep everyone safe.

Prior to an employee or contractor going inside your home or business, health screening will take place. Results of screening will determine if the appointment will proceed and the type of protective equipment to be used. We appreciate our customers’ patience and flexibility as we navigate the impacts of COVID-19 together.

Insulation incentives

Get insulation incentives when you insulate a minimum of 20% of the total building component area. For example, 20% of the total ceiling area, regardless of how many different types of ceiling/roof/attic spaces you have. You must provide legible copies of receipts/invoices at the time of the final Home Energy Evaluation. Please see Eligibility Criteria for details in the program guidelines.

*In the tables below, incentive ranges have been minimized to save space. You can still receive incentives for adding insulation amounts between the ranges shown.
