Home Energy Programs

Ottawa’s future is zero carbon. But today, buildings are responsible for 45% of Ottawa’s greenhouse gas emissions. EnviroCentre designs and runs programs that help homeowners, landlords, tenants, and trades make homes more energy efficient and environmentally sustainable.

Home Energy Assessments

Getting a home energy assessment from a registered energy advisor is the first step to understanding your home’s energy use. Learn what that means, and which rebates and incentives are available to help you offset the cost of making home energy upgrades here.

Better Homes Ottawa

The Better Homes Ottawa website is a one-stop shop for all your questions about home energy efficiency. You’ll find step-by-step guides to greening your home, a glossary explaining the more technical terms, and links to tools and resources that will support you on your retrofit journey.

Affordability Programs

A more energy-efficient home means more comfort and more money in your wallet. EnviroCentre helps qualifying households reduce their energy bills and save energy by helping them access programs run by Save on Energy and Enbridge. Learn more here.
