HESP is a provincial initiative designed to assist households with low income who consume 15,000 kWh of electricity annually in making energy-efficient retrofits to their homes. The program assists clients with retrofits that will make their homes more affordable and reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. All repairs will be identified through an energy evaluation, which will determine the best possible solutions for energy efficiency.
Homeowners with incomes of $32,500 or less per year. If you heat your home with electricity, please provide proof of your annual consumption (can be obtained from your electricity bills). Proof of home-ownership must be provided with the application to the satisfaction of NLHC. Homeowner(s) must provide consent to allow NLHC to receive income information from Canada Revenue Agency. Incomplete applications will be returned.
Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation (NLHC) will provide a pre and post-energy evaluation.
For owners of single, row and semi-detached housing, assistance is available in the form of a grant up to $5,000 per unit.
Condo owners are not eligible for HESP assistance.
