Nearly 3,000 free heat pumps installed across the province; even more Islanders now eligible
Starting Wednesday, Island residents with an annual household income under $75,000 will be eligible for a free heat pump.
“The free heat pump program makes it easy for Island homeowners to help the province reach our nation-leading net zero goals. We’re closing in on nearly 3000 free heat pumps installed so far, and we want to keep that momentum going so even more Islanders can save money on their energy bills.”
- Environment, Energy and Climate Action Minister Steven Myers
To be eligible, Islanders must:
- own their home;
- have a property value of $300,000 or less, and;
- have an annual household income of $75,000 or less.
Residents with an annual household income of $55,000 or less are also eligible for a free electric hot water heater, as well as free heat pump.
Staff will assess applications for eligibility and arrange for a contractor to install the free heat pump.
