Make Your Own Power
It’s never been easier to invest in home energy efficiency projects. The southern portions of the prairie provinces have the best solar energy potential in Canada – take advantage! The federal government will help foot the bill for your installation.
$5,000 – Greener Homes Grants Fund
Grants of up to $5,000 are available to help homeowners make energy efficient retrofits to their homes. EnerGuide evaluations, which is a requirement for your retrofit, are also funded up to $600. In addition to homeowners, Indigenous governments or organizations can also apply. Don’t delay! There are a limited number of grants to be distributed.
For those who have been considering solar for their home, this is a great time to take the next step in the process.
$40,000 – Interest-Free Loans
The Federal government is also providing interest free loans of up to $40,000 to help homeowners complete deep home retrofits. Loans would be available to homeowners and landlords who undertake retrofits identified through an authorized EnerGuide energy assessment. This program will be launched in summer 2021 with details to come.
The federal government just gave Saskatchewan households one more reason to go green, and miEnergy is here to help you take the next step.
Green and Inclusive Community Buildings program
Over the next five years, the Canadian government is committing $1.5 billion to support green and accessible retrofits, repairs or upgrades of existing public community buildings and new community buildings for underserved communities.
miEnergy can lend a hand with the application process and gather data from RETScreen® Expert software to calculate your building’s baseline energy consumption. Projects that will achieve at least 25% in energy efficiency improvements compared to the baseline are more likely to be selected for funding.
Applications for projects under $3 million are being accepted through a continuous intake stream.These small-medium sized projects are evaluated on a first-come-first-serve basis. For larger projects between $3 million and $25 million, the deadline is July 6th, 2021.

City of Edmonton – Solar Program
The City of Edmonton has introduced a Change Homes For Climate – Solar Program to help with the installation of solar systems on homes to produce renewable energy. The City of Edmonton is offering $0.40/watt towards the cost of the system, which is roughly 15% of the cost of going solar!
