2015 Saveonenergy OPA Rebate


This exciting rebate program gives you even more reasons to consider energy-efficient heating and cooling methods! For a limited time, you too can receive up to $650 in rebates by participating in the 2015 Saveonenergy OPA Rebate Program.

Energy audit vouchers cannot be used or combined with multiple offers.

Only one enrolment for incentive per household is permitted.

STEP 2-Pre-retrofit Energy Audit

An energy audit is an inventory and assessment of your home’s current energy efficiency. The energy audit will reveal areas where you can make improvements (called retrofits) to improve your home’s energy efficiency, in turn helping you conserve energy and save money. You must use one of the Certified Energy Auditors (CEAs) approved by Enbridge Gas Distribution.

Here’s what to expect:

    • An energy audit includes an inventory and thorough assessment of your home’s current heating, ventilation and cooling equipment and building envelope.
    • A blower door test will be conducted to determine if your home has air leakage which can cause wasted energy, uncomfortable drafts and poor air quality.
    • Your home will be given an energy score using the Natural Resources Canada EnerGuide Rating System – the higher the score the better.
    • During your energy audit, you will receive recommendations for improvements (called retrofits) that can help you maximize your home’s energy efficiency, reduce your energy bills and increase home comfort.
    • Energy audits will be conducted by our program’s list of approved CEAs.
    • It’s best to book your energy audit before for the winter heating season.

STEP 3-Upgrades

Implement a minimum of 2 of the following recommended qualified energy upgrades:

    • Attic insulation upgrade
    • Basement wall insulation upgrade
    • Wall insulation upgrade
    • Air sealing (minimum 10%)
    • Window replacement
    • High efficiency space heating system installation (gas furnace/boiler)
    • High efficiency water heating system installation (gas)
    • Drain water heat recovery system installation

The energy auditor will advise which measures will need to be upgraded to achieve 25% annual gas savings in order to qualify of the Enbridge incentive. To help you offset the cost of the recommended upgrades, be sure to check out the available incentives offered by Enbridge.

4 STEP-Post-retrofit Energy Audit 

Get your home’s new and improved energy score.

By getting a post-retrofit energy audit, you’ll be able to compare your new and improved energy score against the energy score your home was given prior to making retrofits. It’ll be proof positive that your energy efficiency upgrades have made a difference.
