Get comfortable with free home energy upgrades

The First Nations Conservation Program
provides energy-efficient upgrades that can help you
save energy and make your home more comfortable.This help is offered at no cost to you.

How does the program work?

  • We look at how you’re using energy now

    We will visit your home and recommend the best upgrades for your home. We’ll start by looking at:

    • the light bulbs you are using, and
    • the age of your appliances (e.g., fridge, freezer, dehumidifier and window air conditioner).

    If your home is electrically heated, we’ll also look at:

    • whether drafts are coming in through your doors, windows, attic or basement, and
    • your insulation.
  • We install your energy-efficient upgrades

    After we assess your home’s energy efficiency, we’ll supply and install your upgrades, at no cost to you.

  • We show you more easy ways
    to save

    We’ll also show you how to use your new upgrades and give you advice on more
    ways to save energy.
