DOUBLE UP ON SAVINGS — Efficiency Manitoba



What’s better than receiving a rebate for your energy efficiency upgrades? Receiving multiple rebates to save even more energy and money! 

We’re proud to provide over 40 programs and offers to help you access energy and bill savings in your home, where you work, and in your community. To make your home upgrades even more affordable, you can stack our rebates with those available through the Canada Greener Homes Initiative

In addition to our offers, the Canada Greener Homes Initiative offers grants and loans for homeowners who implement energy efficiency upgrades — such as insulation, windows and doors, air sealing, and mechanical and renewable energy systems — recommended by a certified energy advisor. You can receive a grant of up to $5,000 for eligible retrofits, and potentially qualify for interest-free loans from $5,000 to $40,000 with a repayment term of 10 years for major home retrofits. These rebates can be stacked with our rebates so you can save more! 

The Canada Greener Homes Initiative also offers up to $600 for a pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide home evaluation. Before starting any work and to qualify for the Canada Greener Homes Initiative, a certified energy advisor must complete your evaluation; they’ll recommend energy efficiency upgrades that make sense for your home. Once you choose your upgrades and check to see if you qualify for any Efficiency Manitoba rebates, you can hire a licensed professional to complete the work. 

While the Canada Greener Homes Initiative and our programs both offer rebates for energy efficiency upgrades, there are some differences. Here are a few important things to keep in mind when comparing our rebates with the Canada Greener Homes Initiative: 

  • You can participate in multiple Efficiency Manitoba programs for your home and you could be eligible to receive the maximum rebate available for each program. But it’s important to note that the maximum grant available through the Canada Greener Homes Initiative is $5,000 per home for all energy efficiency upgrades recommended in your pre-evaluation report. 
  • Just because you qualify for a rebate through us, you won’t necessarily qualify for a grant through the Canada Greener Homes Initiative, and vice versa. 
  • While accessing the Canada Greener Homes Initiative requires a pre- and post-retrofit EnerGuide home evaluation, many of our programs don’t have this requirement. 
  • Some of our programs and rebates also require approval before you start any work; check them out to learn more.
