• How to qualify for Enbridge and IESO rebates in Ontario

  • If you are an Enbridge consumer who is thinking about house energy upgrades you can get up to $2100 in Enbridge Rebates and up to $650 IESO Incentive (former Ontario Power Authority). Enbridge Gas Distribution has resumed its Home Energy Conservation Program in 2016. These Provincial rebate programs are really designed to help homeowners to upgrade their old mid efficient HVAC equipment so that they can save the money on natural gas and hydro bills and to reduce their greenhouse emission at the same time. These rebates are for limited time and we encourage homeowners to take advantage of them while they are available. If your HVAC system is over 12 years and you don’t have a budget or didn’t plan for new HVAC system we would advise you to use our low interest financing option to take full advantage of these incentives and once you get your rebates (typically 6-12 weeks) you can put it towards your financing to make your payments even lower.
