That is why we are excited to share everything you need to know about the Greener Homes Grant and loan program.

  1. Being eligible for and applying for the Canada Greener Homes Grant or a similar provincial program.
  2. Being a Canadian homeowner with a primary residence.

Advantages of the Greener Homes Program

1. Environmental Impact

The Greener Homes program provides a significant positive impact on the environment. The program reduces greenhouse gas emissions by encouraging homeowners to adopt energy-efficient measures and to invest in renewable energy systems. Upgrades such as improved insulation, energy-efficient windows and doors, solar panels, or geothermal heat pumps help decrease energy consumption and reliance on fossil fuels. This leads to more sustainable and cleaner energy usage, mitigating the effects of climate change and preserving the environment for future generations.

2. Energy Savings

By investing in more energy-efficient appliances and technologies through this program, homeowners can significantly lower their monthly expenses while doing their part to combat climate change. Additionally, these upgrades can help improve indoor air quality, making homes healthier and more comfortable for residents.

3. Increased Property Value

Energy-efficient upgrades are highly sought after by homebuyers because they not only reduce utility costs but also promote sustainability. According to recent studies, homes with green features sell faster than those without and typically command higher prices in competitive markets. Additionally, lenders may be more willing to offer financing for homes that have undergone energy-efficient upgrades because they are viewed as less risky investments.
