Energy Efficiency Description:

EcoPerfomance Buildings

Encourages residential renovation and for heating system conversions intended to reduce the energy use and greenhouse gas emissions of Quebec homes, while enhancing their occupants’ comfort. The Program hinges around:

  • Improving energy efficiency;
  • Heating with Green Power.

The Heating with Green Power component provides financial assistance to home owners who replace their central heating system or water heater that uses fuel oil, propane or any other fossil fuel (except natural gas) with a system that runs exclusively on electricity or one or more sources of renewable energies such as geothermal, wind, solar and thermo-aerodynamic (heat pump) energies.

EcoPerformance Halocarbons

This program also promotes substituting refrigerants with substances that have a lower global-warming power.


EcoPerformance Industrial:

This program seeks to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and energy use in the industrial sector by funding projects or measures connected with energy use and production, as well as with process improvement.

The Program also aims to reduce 700 tonnes equivalent CO2.
