What we do
Ridge Energy Consultants Inc is licensed to deliver residential energy assessments to owners of single family homes across Canada. Under various Provincial and local programs, property owners can qualify for grants and rebates by improving the energy efficiency of their homes, and reducing their home’s impact on the environment.
How the Program Works
To participate and be eligible for grants and rebates, you must hire a registered Energy Advisor to perform an Energy Audit before and after any retrofits you make on your home. The Energy Advisor will process all of the paperwork for you. You will receive a report and label after the first audit and a new label after the second audit.
Energy Evaluations and Labels
The Government of Canada encourages homeowners to have an energy evaluation done to identify improvements, and receive an EnerGuide rating label.
