Provincial Rebates

An Overview of Provincial Rebates

Provincial Rebates are rebates, grants, programs, etc. as designed and funded by provincial governments across Canada. These rebates are available to qualifying residents in each province. Simply put, if you are a resident in Ontario, you can qualify for any rebate made available by the Provincial Government of Ontario, but not rebates provided by the Provincial Government of Nova Scotia as an example. Homesol currently operates in Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. Like the Federal Rebates, before you can apply for a rebate you need to have an Energy Advisor conduct an Energy Assessment of your home or building to see what upgrades your home can apply for. Homesol Building Solutions has been conducting Energy Assessments since 1999 with Energy Advisors in all four provinces we operate in. Make sure to book your Energy Assessment today to get started!

Municipal Rebates

An Overview of Municipal Rebates

Municipal Rebates are rebates provided by municipal governments across Canada. These rebates and programs are made available to residents in a set municipality in different cities across Canada. These programs usually don’t last as long as the federal or provincial programs, due to the smaller budgets of municipal governments compared to the federal and provincial ones. Like the federal and provincial programs, before you can apply for a rebate you need to have an Energy Advisor conduct an Energy Assessment of your home or building to see what upgrades your home can apply for. Homesol Building Solutions has been conducting Energy Assessments since 1999 all across Canada. Make sure to book your Energy Assessment today to get started!

Better Homes Loan Program

The City of Ottawa has developed the Better Homes Loan program to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Ottawa. Ottawa homeowners could get a low-interest loan of up to 10 percent of the current value of their home to cover the cost of home energy improvements. The loan would be tied to the property, not the owner. This means that if the home is sold before the loan is repaid, the new owner will assume the balance of the loan. This program will launch fully in the late summer of 2021, be sure to book an Energy Assessment today so you can be ready for the rebates this summer!
