Edmonton, Alberta downtown skyline - Edmonton Launches EnerGuide Residential Energy Evaluation Program & Rebate

 

The City of Edmonton has launched the EnerGuide residential energy evaluation program in an effort to move to a low carbon, energy sustainable future.

EnerGuide for Homes

“EnerGuide is a Natural Resources Canada tool for evaluating home energy performance. The program consists of a home evaluation done by a professional energy advisor, a report with recommendations on upgrades/ renovations that could be done to improve the home’s efficiency, and a label with a rating on the energy performance of the home” (Edmonton.ca)

 

The program is designed to produce a report, like the nutrition label on your food, giving home buyers an energy efficiency evaluation with a rating on a home. The evaluation and rating are based on the home’s energy performance and operating costs.

 

As the database and map of EnerGuide evaluations and ratings grow, home buyers will be able to compare houses by their energy efficiency, operating costs, and identify potential renovations.

EnerGuide for Homes $400 Rebate Program

A rebate for $400 against the cost of the evaluation is available to residents of Edmonton when their label is shared on the EnerGuide map.

Professional Energy Advisors

In order to make this program a success, many homes must have an evaluation conducted by a professional energy advisor, which means there will be a growing demand for energy advisors.

 

Become An Energy Advisor

 

In order to become an energy advisor, you must pass Natural Resource Canada’s Foundation Level exam and Energy Advisor exam.

 

CIET offers prep courses for both exams to ensure that aspiring energy advisors are prepared to take each exam.
