The Better Homes Ottawa Loan Program is a City of Ottawa pilot loan program for home energy efficiency retrofits. It aims to support local residents to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
The program offers low-interest, 20-year loans of up to the lesser of $125,000 or 10 per cent of the current value of the home to cover the cost of home energy improvements like thermal envelope upgrades, mechanical systems, renewable energy, EV chargers, and the addition of rental suites.
