Free Energy Upgrades for Qualifying Households in Need


Enbridge Gas and Save on Energy have teamed up to help you lower your energy costs and make your home more comfortable. Now streamlined into just one simple application, the Home Winterproofing Program and Energy Affordability Program offer energy-saving upgrades at no cost. If your home and household income levels qualify, you’ll be eligible for free insulation, draft proofing, a smart thermostat, Energy Star® appliances and more.

By helping Ontarians reduce energy use, we’re not only doing our part in the fight against climate change, but helping to keep natural gas affordable for all by avoiding expensive repairs on our infrastructure.


Is your home heated by oil? Is your household at or below the median household after-tax income?


Canadian homeowners who answer “yes” may be eligible to receive a payment of up to $10,000 under the strengthened Oil to Heat Pump Affordability program to switch from oil heating to new, energy-efficient heat pumps.

The strengthened program makes it easier and more cost effective for low-to-median households to switch from oil heating to a heat pump. It helps Canadian homeowners, who are currently heating their homes with oil, transition to electric heat by installing an eligible heat pump system (air source, cold climate air source, or ground source). Making the switch can help you save thousands of dollars on your heating bills every year and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.


What is the Energy Affordability Program?


The Energy Affordability Program provides support to income-eligible electricity consumers by helping them to better manage their monthly electricity costs and to increase their home comfort.

There are two types of support available through the Energy Affordability Program: Comprehensive Support and Energy Saving Kits.

People who live in Ontario (including those living in grid-connected First Nations communities) and are responsible for paying their monthly electricity bill as a homeowner or as a renter may qualify for this program. The type of support provided will depend on your household income level from the previous year and how many people live in your home, or on your receipt of a qualifying government or energy-support benefit. Residents of social housing may also be eligible.

All expert advice and energy-saving home upgrades under this program are completely free of charge.
