Feds launch strengthened heat pump program in Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia has announced that it will co-deliver the strengthened Oil to Heat Pump Affordability (OHPA) program in partnership with the federal government, to make the transition to heat pumps more affordable.

The program will allow low- to median-income households in the province to receive up to $30,000 in funding to help them switch from oil to a heat pump. The funding includes up to $15,000 from the federal government, and up to $15,000 from the government of Nova Scotia. EfficiencyOne is the co-delivery partner. The program expects to serve an estimated 10,186 qualifying low-income homeowners in Nova Scotia.

OHPA applicants will also receive a one-time payment of $250 from the federal government.

According to Natural Resources Canada homeowners who switch from an oil furnace to a cold-climate heat pump can save between $1,500 and $4,500 annually on home energy bills.
