Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+) Program

As of February 5th, 2024, we regret to announce the immediate discontinuation of the Enbridge Gas HER+ program. This decision has been taken in light of the premature depletion of the program's combined funding, which was supported jointly by Enbridge Gas and the Canada Greener Homes Grant. We apologize for any inconvenience this sudden closure may cause, and thank you for your understanding.


As of January 4, 2023, the Canada Greener Homes Grant is being co-delivered across Ontario by Natural Resources Canada and Enbridge Gas under the new title of Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+). This new rebate program offers entirely updated - and oftentimes significantly increased - rebates for many home efficiency upgrades, including up to $10,000 for home insulation upgrades for homeowners who are Enbridge customers. If you are not an Enbridge customer, you may be eligible for up to $5,000 in rebates.

If you are an Ontario homeowner who applied for the Canada Greener Homes Grant prior to January 4, 2023, you must still utilize the CGHG portal to manage your grant application.

What's new for the HER+ program?

The Home Efficiency Rebate Plus offers simplifies available rebates into two offerings:

  • Rebate Package A offering up to $10,000 in rebates for homeowners who are Enbridge customers
  • This rebate package is funded by Enbridge Gas and the Government of Canada's Greener Homes Grant
  • Rebate Package B offering up to $5,000 in rebates for homeowners who are not Enbridge customers
  • This rebate package is funded by the Government of Canada's Greener Homes Grant

One important differentiating factor between the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus program and past programs available in Ontario is that only one retrofit upgrade is required to qualify for rebates, whereas some previous programs required multiple.

Regardless of which rebate package you qualify for, your available rebate amounts have been updated for the launch of the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus program and differ from the previously-available rebate amounts. Additionally, new eligibility criteria allow more Ontarians to qualify for rebates, outlined below.

The following do not qualify for the HER+ program:

  • Homes where the owner is not the primary resident and do not have an active Enbridge Gas account.
  • Homes built less than 6 months ago.
  • Cooperatives
  • Some mixed-use buildings and MURBs, details available on the Enbridge Gas website.
