What is HomeWarming?
It’s important to us that everyone can benefit from energy efficiency, regardless of income. That’s why we offer a no-charge energy assessment and home upgrades to qualifying homeowners. If we discover that upgrades like draft-proofing and insulation will help reduce your heating and power bills, we’ll install the upgrades at absolutely no cost to you.
HomeWarming is part of a broad, province-wide initiative to provide energy efficient upgrades for income qualified homeowners.
How is HomeWarming funded?
Emera shareholders provide the funding to Clean Foundation for electrically heated homes. The Province of Nova Scotia provides the funding to Efficiency Nova Scotia for the non-electrically heated home upgrades.
