Greener Homes London works to provide residents with the guidance, tools and resources to assist them with reducing their environmental impact at home. With a focus on highlighting the advantages of green modifications, and the benefits of retrofit projects such as significantly reducing energy consumption and in turn, lowering utility costs. We also provide up-to-date information & consultation on available rebates, loans, and incentive programs that provide financial assistance for implementing green modifications, our ultimate goal is to create more sustainable homes to create a more sustainable London for all to enjoy.

We have put together a list of available financial incentives for green home retrofits and renovations to make renovating your home a breeze!

London Green Retrofit Rebate:
The London Environmental Network (LEN) is excited to announce the Green Retrofit Rebate program! We will be offering Green Retrofit Rebates of $1,000 for a limited time based on a first-come-first-serve basis until funds are exhausted or until December 1st, 2024. Read below for more details on homeowner & retrofit eligibility, and how you can apply today. The London Green Retrofit Rebate can be combined with other incentive programs such as the Canada Greener Homes Grant, or the HER+ program.
The London Environmental Network’s Greener Homes London program works to inspire and empower homeowners to reduce the impact of their homes through increased energy efficiency and carbon reductions while supporting homeowners to achieve financial incentives as a result of these home improvements. As we all work to reduce our emissions to meet the 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan targets of 40% below 2005 levels by 2030, the London Environmental Network is thrilled to offer Londoners another way to participate in emissions reductions, and achieve energy efficiency, by offering financial incentives for these retrofits. Our goal is to reduce the burden of implementation experienced by homeowners across the city through the London Green Retrofit Rebate Program.
