A wave of new homeowners in Saskatchewan has created a spike in demand for Home Energy upgrade programs.
There are great reasons to move to Saskatchewan. But, the first winter can be a bit of a shock.
With the ongoing wave of immigration into Saskatchewan, many new homeowners have taken advantage of programs to help stay warm in this province. Housing programs focused on
energy-efficiency have experienced seen a dramatic increase in demand throughout the province.
In particular, the Saskatchewan EnerGuide for Houses grant program has been very popular for homeowners seeking to improve energy-efficiency. The energy evaluation program provides
unique recommendations for each home, and up to $5,000 in provincial grants administered by SaskEnergy.
Keith Hanson, President and CEO of Sun Ridge Residential, notes that the influx of workers and their families has fueled the demand for all energy efficient housing throughout the province.
“People are moving to Saskatchewan, establishing roots and raising families, and they want the best homes available. Whether they’re building new homes or purchasing older homes, they
plan to be here for a long time. Things like ongoing operational costs and environmental impact have become major considerations in their decision-making.”
It’s a rare win-win-win situation. Homeowners save on utility bills, increase property values, support local industry, and reduce provincial greenhouse gas emissions.
