Energy Efficiency Alberta, a new Government of Alberta agency, created the Home Improvement Rebates program to promote efficient energy consumption and reduce Alberta’s carbon footprint. The program is designed to support homeowners with the installation of energy-efficient appliances and products to reduce household emissions.
Rebates of up to $3,500 will be granted for eligible products including insulation, water heaters (ENERGY STAR® certified) and triple glaze (low-e, argon) windows.
These rebates will not only make energy efficient products more affordable, they’ll also lower energy bills for homeowners after installation.
To receive a rebate for the installation of an eligible home improvement product, start by selecting an Alberta-based registered contractor from the list provided at efficiencyalberta.ca. Your contractor will then guide you through the application process and rebates will be sent directly to you after the completion of each project.
Rebate program types:
The Home Improvement Rebate is just one of three rebate types offered by Energy Efficiency Alberta. Below are the different rebates available through the
Residential Retail Products Program:
Home Improvement Rebate:
Rebates for eligible home improvement products that are installed by a certified Alberta-based contractor.
Homeowners who buy qualifying refrigerators, smart thermostats and clothes washers may apply for rebates online.
Residential Solar Program:
The Residential and Commercial Solar Program offers rebates to homeowners, businesses and non-profits that install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Bolstered by other initiatives like the Alberta Municipal Solar Program and the On-Farm Solar PV Program, solar uptake has doubled in the province since 2015. Albertans are keen on solar, and this program keeps the momentum going!
Residential No-charge Engergy Savings Program:
The Residential No-Charge Energy Savings Program offers direct, no-charge installation of energy efficient products across the province, in rural and urban houses, apartments and condos. Whether you own or rent your home, an Energy Efficiency Alberta installer will visit your home and conduct a walkthrough to identify potential opportunities for energy-efficient upgrades at no charge. Most homes can be upgraded in one to three hours.
