Third Year of Enbridge’s Energy School Challenge

Published on December 10, 2018

Enbridge Gas is currently holding its third year of the Energy School Challenge, where it challenges elementary school students to think of ways to save energy, with an award of $3000 to be used for school activities that will go to the school with the most points in the challenge.

The challenge has the intention of inspiring students to engage in information about energy efficiency and the conservation of natural gas in a way that is interactive, competitive, and enjoyable.

Students who are from schools participating in the challenge will be taking part in energy conservation activities, such as changing the way they interact and use the schools energy in a positive way, and having them monitor and measure their energy-saving progress.

This is a way of teaching students energy saving methods and behaviours that they can bring home and continue to practice.  


Program materials are made available to participating schools, and provide students with a guide for learning about energy efficiency and with a set of activities which allows them to be awarded points for how many they complete.


This is done through Enbridge’s Energy School Challenge Points Dashboard, and participating schools are able to track their progress in comparison to the average of other competing schools.


The participating elementary school with the second most points in the challenge will receive $2,000 to be put towards school activity funding, while the third place school will receive $1,000.


The Energy School Challenge is set to run until the 4th of May 2019.


Improving Energy Efficiency in Your Own Home

Energy efficiency improvements can go a long way towards improving not only the carbon footprint of your home, but also towards lowering your utility payments, and increasing your home’s comfort level and market value.


By having a Home Energy Assessment conducted by a Registered Energy Advisor, you can be made aware how efficient your home is, and how its efficiency could be improved. As part of the assessment our advisors will show you every possible option for improving efficiency in your home, and will rank them in terms of which option will provide you with the biggest improvement per dollar spent. You are also able to see the expected energy and utility bill savings of each suggestion, making it easy for you to make an informed decision.


Additionally, a Home Energy Assessment can help you qualify for up to $5,000 of home renovation rebates that are currently available to both Enbridge and Union Gas customers - making it even easier for you to see a return on your efficiency-improving investments.


Our advisors are able to answer any questions you may have regarding your home’s energy consumption or efficiency, and they are more than happy to help you figure out which options for improving efficiency would be the best fit for your needs.


The Canada Greener Homes Grant offers home efficiency renovation grants up to $5,000.

Homeowners Canada-wide are eligible for the Canada Greener Homes Grant, announced on May 27, 2021. This new incentive offers up to $5,000 in grants for home efficiency retrofit renovations, plus a $600 reimbursement for pre- and post-work EnerGuide evaluations. Eligible retrofit scopes include home insulation, heating, doors, windows, photovoltaic solar panels, resiliency measures, and thermostats.
