Our homes and commercial buildings are responsible for 18% of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions and the government seeks to support Canadians in making their homes more energy-efficient.
The Canadian government has recently launched the Canada Greener Homes campaign and this program is expected to be worth approximately $2.6 billion over the next seven years.
Homeowners will be eligible to receive up to $5,000 in grants to implement solar-powered energy to their primary residence, along with up to $600 to cover the costs of home energy evaluations by certified advisors.
Approved HES solar installers will ensure a seamless installation of the panels and homeowners would then be compensated after an examination of the completed installations.
Homeowners can receive this grant from the Canada Greener Homes initiative for the installation of photovoltaic technology that converts sunlight directly into electricity. The solar industry has experienced a major spike globally in the past decade, and we are expecting significant growth nation-wide in the upcoming years.
Relying on natural energy, solar panels guarantee a reduction of global carbon footprint as they produce no emissions of any kind. Natural renewable energy is a clean and safe alternative to fossil fuels, providing improved air quality that does not harm our earth.
If you are looking to maximize efficiency and secure profitable returns on your investments, the greener homes grant can discount your solar system costs anywhere form 30% to 45% off – depending on local requirements.
A leading feature of solar energy is that it enables homeowners to lower electric expenses. The cost of manufacturing, distribution and maintenance are considerably reduced since solar is harnessed from natural resources – namely the sun.
The expenses after the first installation are limited, leaving you with optimum output and efficiency, and above all, an endless supply of clean energy.
