Get up to $20,000 in rebates to install a home geothermal system

Heat and cool your home while reducing your carbon emissions. Ground-source heat pumps (GSHPs), also known as home geothermal, use the earth’s constant underground temperature to draw heat to warm your home more efficiently, which can reduce heating costs by up to 50 per cent. In the summer, it reverses the cycle to keep your home cool and comfortable.

Who Can Participate

Using a participating contractor (Buchanan & Hall), Ontario homeowners who live in a detached home, townhouse or semi are able to take part. The rebate is also available to homeowners of new custom home builds.
