Expert help, incentives and free upgrades to save energy and money

As an affordable housing provider, energy efficiency is one of the best long-term investments you can make. We offer programs and incentives to help optimize your buildings’ performance and improve overall comfort for your residents.

This program is for social and municipal housing providers, shelters, co-ops and eligible market-rate multi-family buildings. Eligible market-rate multi-family buildings will need to demonstrate either at least 30 percent of units are rented at less than 80 percent of the median market rent, determined by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation, based on the information gathered during rent roll review by Enbridge Gas, or the building has participated in a federal, provincial, or municipal affordable housing funding program in the last 5 years.
