GRANTS AVAILABLE IN THE GREATER MONTREAL AREA!
Grants for your heating and air conditioning systems and your electric vehicle charging station!
Since adding or replacing a heat pump, air conditioning or heating system, or the addition of an electric vehicle charging station usually brings significant energy savings, the federal and provincial governments offer a variety of grants when you make eco-friendly purchases!

Main government assistance programs in detail
Chauffez Vert program
The government's Chauffez Vert program encourages the conversion of oil or propane heating systems or water heaters with a less polluting (usually electric) system. In some cases, the rebate can reach up to $1,275 for a heating system and $250 for a water heater (for a single-family home).*

The Canada for greener homes grant
The Canada for Greener Homes Grant encourages homeowners to make their homes more energy efficient and fight climate change.
With the purchase of a new, approved energy efficient heat pump, you could receive up to $ 5,000 and a free home inspection (infiltrometry test) as part of the initiative.
New to the program!
The federal government recently announced financial assistance for low-income households to convert from an oil heating system to a heat pump.
Gas - dual energy grant
Dual energy grant for sustainable decarbonization
This subsidy program to switch from natural gas heating to electricity-natural gas dual energy is offered jointly by the Ministère de l'Énergie et des Ressources naturelles, Hydro-Québec and Énergir and is intended for Énergir's residential customers (single-family homes, duplexes, triplexes, condos, and rental buildings of 4 to 19 units).
Generous grants are available to homeowners using a natural gas heating system who wish to add a heat pump to their ducted central heating system, or to add an electric boiler to their gas boiler!
Replacing the existing gas appliance is not a requirement to receive the grant!
In addition to the many grants available to help you reduce the cost of purchasing and installing new appliances, the dual energy electricity-natural gas mode allows you to take advantage of the Hydro-Québec's DT Rate.
Hydro québec program
Whether for a replacement or new installation, opt for an efficient heat pump and benefit from financial assistance from Hydro Quebec!
Simple and quick since it does not require a blower door test (or airtightness test), this grant is accessible to a wider audience: it is offered to owners of single-family homes, but also if you own a condo!
The amount, which can be as much as $2,800*, varies according to the power and efficiency of the device in low temperatures.
The RénoClimat grant option in Montreal and Laval
The provincial RénoClimat grant is also available in the Greater Montreal area if you have other energy-efficient renovation projects (e.g.: windows, insulation, air exchanger), in addition to the replacement or addition of an eligible high performance heat pump.
Please note that, in this case, a blower door test (or air tightness test) will be required to determine your eligibility.
*Note that the approved equipment and the amount granted for the chosen heat pump is the same for Rénoclimat as for the Hydro-Québec offer.
Roulez vert program
The Roulez Vert government program encourages the installation of new home charging stations for electric vehicles by offering lump-sum financial assistance of $600* with the purchase and installation of a 240-volt home charging station.
Don’t forget to plan your electrical work!
In Quebec, the Construction Code requires that electrical work be done by an electrical contractor licensed by the Régie du bâtiment du Québec. Contact us to make an appointment!
Consult the list of charging stations eligible for the Roulez Vert program.
* Certain conditions apply. Some dealers, manufacturers or municipalities offer promotions for the purchase or installation of a home charging station. If you have received financial assistance to cover the purchase or installation costs, you may not be eligible for reimbursement for a home charging station under the Roulez Vert program.
