What is the Greener Homes Grant?

The Canada Greener Homes Grant is a federal government program aimed at raising the energy efficiency and resiliency of residential buildings.  The program will provide up to 700,000 grants to support retrofitting existing homes to greener technology.


The program is designed to reimburse up to $5,000 for home retrofits including renewable energy.

The grant is conditional on performing an EnerGuide energy audit, and up to $600 of the assessment cost is also covered.

Eligibility criteria for a grant:

  • All equipment must be purchased in Canada.
  • Online purchases are only eligible if they are ordered from a distributor located in Canada.
  • The system must be comprised of one or more PV panels and inverter(s) (if required) certified to CSA Standards.
  • The total system peak power capacity must be equal to or greater than 1.0 kW DC.

Batteries connected to Solar PV systems to provide standby power for home = $1,000

Install solar panels (PV system) with a capacity of at least 1.0 kW DC = $1,000 per kW.
