Have there been other programs like HomeWarming?
Yes. HomeWarming is built on previous low-income energy efficiency programs run by Efficiency Nova Scotia. From 2006 to 2014, over 7,000 homes received energy efficiency upgrades. The program known as HomeWarming started under that name in late 2014.
Over 16,000 low-income Nova Scotians have now had energy efficiency upgrades to their homes since 2007, when government began funding them through various programs.
