1. Certain conditions apply. Grant amounts vary depending on the power of the appliances installed and the work done to install them.

Grant amounts cannot exceed 80% of the equipment purchase and installation premium cost.²

Costs for electrical work may be added to the cost of purchasing and installing the equipment.

To take advantage of the grants, you must sign a contract with your Énergir sales representative or certified natural gas partner prior to installation.

The grant amounts and program terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.

2. The premium cost for a project is the difference between the estimated cost of a project (the cost of purchasing and installing a dual-energy system) and the estimated baseline cost (the cost of purchasing and installing a natural gas appliance).
