What kind of technology/technologies are you planning to install? Please select all that apply:

Electric resistance baseboard and convection heaters are only eligible as back-up for a whole-home heat pump system.

* Although mini-split heat pumps are an eligible technology, the whole home heating requirement effectively means that less than 1% of houses can achieve whole home heating with a single mini-split.
Do you have a quote from a participating installer?

Please contact a participating installer to get a quote. You can find a list of participating installers here. Once you have a quote, you can proceed with your application.

Income Eligibility

Income Eligibility

Please carefully review the following chart to ensure you meet this program's income eligibility requirement. Eligibility is based on the number of people living in your household* and the adjusted net income** of you and your spouse or common-law partner.

Income Chart

For customers heated by propane, the incentive to convert to an electric furnace or boiler will correspond to the same incentive for electric boilers and furnaces under the income-qualified stream. When converting from propane to heat pumps, the incentive will align with the general stream amount for the corresponding heat pump technology. If you would like clarification on this point, please email OiltoElectric@TakeChargeNL.ca.

* The number of persons living in the home is defined as the homeowner(s) (a maximum of two) and any other individuals living in the household year-round at the time of application.
