The Home Energy Retrofit Accelerator (HERA) is a program that helps you understand your home’s emissions, and provides rebates for upgrades including high-efficiency furnaces, insulation, hot water heaters, windows, drain water heat recovery and more.
HERA is estimated to be fully subscribed and will no longer be accepting new homeowner enrolments or rebate applications. Check out the Canada Greener Homes Program as they may still have funds for home energy retrofit rebates.
In partnership with Google and MyHeat, Edmonton is the first municipality in Canada to access a new rooftop solar potential platform.

Edmontonians can save up to $4,000 towards the installation of a solar renewable energy system for their home through the solar rebate program.
Our Building Energy Benchmarking Program improves building energy efficiency, and contributes to significant energy savings and greenhouse gas reduction by providing owners with information about their building. The program supports building owners and operators to reduce energy consumption.

Upgrades to HVAC systems, windows, lighting fixtures, building envelopes and more are eligible for rebates, up to $125,000 per building, per year.
Commercial CEIP is a financing tool for commercial property owners to help fund energy efficiency upgrades and/or renewable energy installations with a competitive interest rate and repayment terms of up to 20 years (depending on the type of upgrade).
