Alberta Residential Financial Incentives for Insulation

Home Energy Retrofit Accelerator (HERA)

Edmonton’s Home Energy Retrofit Accelerator (HERA) is a program that helps you understand your home’s energy efficiency and provides rebates for upgrades. Insulation, windows, water and space heating equipment are all eligible for rebates with bonuses available for bigger renovations.

To start the process, an expert comes to your home and provides an EnerGuide Home Energy Evaluation. You will receive professional advice from your energy advisor on how to renovate your home to be more energy efficient.

Rebates are available to help cover the costs of an EnerGuide label and subsequent upgrades to your home. Once home upgrades have been completed, you can have your EnerGuide label updated to reflect your renovated home.

For program details, see the Program User GuideProgram Terms & Conditions and these Frequently Asked Questions.

Clean Energy Improvement Program

Lower your utility bill, make your property more comfortable, and enhance your property value. Invest in energy efficiency or renewable energy upgrades with the Clean Energy Improvement Program. It’s an affordable, flexible, and streamlined approach to financing.

The Town of Rocky Mountain House, Town of Devon, and City of Edmonton are expected to begin application intake in early Fall 2021.

Alberta’s Clean Energy Improvement Program (CEIP) provides financing to residential and commercial property owners to make energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades more affordable.

This innovative financing approach, also known as Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE), is garnering successful results in municipalities across Canada. Alberta municipalities must past a bylaw and choose to implement the program; property owners located in these municipalities can choose to apply.

In Alberta, CEIP offers competitive financing to cover up to 100 per cent of project costs and makes repayment convenient through your property’s regular tax bill.
