Homewarming Program

HomeWarming Program

It’s important to us that everyone benefits from energy efficiency.

That’s why we fund a no-charge energy assessment and home upgrades to income-qualified homeowners through the HomeWarming program. HomeWarming offers eligible Nova Scotians the power to reduce their energy use and take control of home operating costs. Free home energy assessments, insulation info, air sealing and duct sealing are some of the ways you can create room in your household budget. The program offers upgrades like draft-proofing and insulation will help reduce your heating and power bills, and are installed at absolutely no cost to you. Through contributions from Emera shareholders, Nova Scotia Power is funding $37 million towards this program over a 10-year period. We are pleased to be partnering with the Province of Nova Scotia, EfficiencyOne, and the Clean Foundation to offer this program to Nova Scotians.
