What is the Energy Affordability Program?
The Energy Affordability Program has replaced the Home Assistance program.
The new program is designed to support our customers by helping reduce their monthly electricity costs through energy efficient upgrades.
The program is income-based, and depending on each customer’s situation, they may receive a free home energy needs assessment by an energy professional that will identify energy-efficient upgrades available for their home. This could include replacing inefficient appliances or having insulation and draft-proofing professionally installed.
Other participants may qualify for free, customised energy saving kits which could include:
- ENERGY STAR®-certified LED light bulbs
- High-efficiency shower-heads (standard and handheld)*
- Faucet aerators (kitchen and bathroom)*
- Drying line for clothes
- Energy-efficient refrigerator
- Window air conditioner
- Smart power strip
- Additional attic or basement insulation**
- Weatherstripping around doors and windows**
- Smart thermostat(s)**
*for homes with electric hot water heating
**for homes heated by electricity
The expert advice and energy-saving home upgrades under this program are completely free of charge.
