Northwest Territories Residential Financial Incentives for Insulation

Arctic Energy Alliance

Home Insulation

Insulation keeps your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It can deliver comfort and lower energy bills during the hottest and coldest times of the year—and reduce your greenhouse gas emissions.

Insulation type Rebate
Exterior wall insulation Up to $4,000
Ceiling insulation Up to $750
Exposed floor insulation $250
Basement insulation Up to $1,250
Basement header insulation $250
Crawlspace insulation Up to $1,000


New Homes

A home that’s designed to be energy-efficient can save you money right from the start.

Item Rebate
New home that uses at least 50% less heating energy than an EnerGuide typical new house $2,500

Heating energy use is measured in gigajoules per year, and calculations will be done by the AEA using the EnerGuide Rating System software from Natural Resources Canada.



Rebates on Energy Efficient Home Improvements

Under this program, the rebate you receive for upgrading your insulation will be double that of the AEA’s rebate program for energy-efficient products.

Get up to $8,000 for upgrading exterior wall insulation, and up to $5,000 for insulating attics, ceilings, exposed floors, basements, basement headers and crawlspaces.

Note: To be eligible for all other rebates under this program, exterior wall insulation is required.
