Home Energy Savings Program (HESP)

Home Energy Savings Program (HESP)

HESP is a provincial initiative designed to assist households with low income in making energy efficient retrofits to their homes. The program assists clients with retrofits that will make their homes more affordable and reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.

Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation (NLHC) will provide a pre and post-energy inspection.

For owners of single, row and semi-detached housing, assistance is available in the form of a grant up to $5,000 per unit.

What repairs or renovations qualify under this program?

All repairs will be identified through an energy evaluation, which will determine the best possible solutions for energy efficiency. A post-energy evaluation will also be required to confirm that identified work was completed. Examples of some repairs that will create energy efficiency are: basement and attic insulation, and draft-proofing.
