New $40,000 Interest-Free Loan Program
The Federal Government has rolled out the Greener Homes Loan Program, an interest-free loan program providing Canadian Homeowners with up to $40,000 to make energy-efficient upgrades to their home. The program is an extension of the existing Canada Greener Homes Grant, which offers Canadian homeowners up to $5,600 for energy-efficient upgrades including solar panels, heat pumps, insulation, windows, and more.
Top Available Upgrades
- Air Sealing
- Attic / Celling Insulation

The first step is to schedule an Energy Evaluation with Homesol Building Solutions. Homesol will conduct two EnerGuide home evaluations to determine what possible upgrades you would need and which ones you can qualify for. Upon completion of the evaluations, you take the recommendations to invest in upgraded equipment which the grant will cover.
The second major step in the process is to apply for the Canada Greener Homes Grant after scheduling your first Energy Evaluation. We can help you with the application. Once you go through the application process, Homesol will perform the prior and post-retrofit Energy Evaluation for your home under the program.
Any upgrades recommended by your Homesol Energy Advisor are eligible for a rebate of 20% to 100% of the cost of the renovation to a maximum of 5000 dollars. In addition, if any upgrade is completed, you will receive up to 600 dollars to cover the cost of the energy evaluations.
