Move Away from Oil Announcement:

The Province of Nova Scotia recently announced new funding to help low-income and middle-income Nova Scotians transition away from oil heating.

If you are interested in the free heat pumps for income qualified homes, visit to see the income criteria and to apply today. If you were previously enrolled in the HomeWarming Program and heat your home with oil, regardless of if you had received upgrades or not, you are eligible to reapply to the HomeWarming Program to be considered for a heat pump and any electrical panel upgrades needed to install them. If you are currently enrolled in HomeWarming, our team will reach out to you directly once the heat pump portion of the program launches.

We are currently awaiting program details for the middle-income incentives through the Home Energy Assessment program. If you would like to be kept up-to-date as we learn more and roll out this portion of the program, please complete this form.
