If you are a landlord and rent residential property, then you may qualify for Your Energy Rebate. Your Energy Rebate is a provincial program designed to help Nova Scotians with home energy costs. Your Energy Rebate does not cover business energy costs.
If you are charged commercial service rates for your electricity, you may claim a rebate on your full residential power usage indicated on your bill.
The demand charge is also eligible for the rebate. Effective January 1, 2010, any energy efficiency program charges included on a commercial service rate customer's electricity bill may be included in the calculation of the rebate under the program.
All electricity consumed for residential purposes is eligible for the rebate. If you are being billed at the domestic service rate, the rebate will be automatically deducted from your bill. The base charge is also eligible for the rebate.
Effective January 1, 2010, energy efficiency program charges are eligible for the rebate.
Complete the application form in full.
Include all receipts for the home energy purchases.
Please ensure that your receipts indicate the following:
You may submit one application each quarter (April, July, October and January).
If you only purchase fuel for residential use and have submitted a declaration stating that you do not heat any non-residential space, you may apply whenever you have purchased enough fuel to receive a rebate of $30.00 or more.
For deliveries of heating oil, propane, natural gas and firewood delivered by a registered bulk vendor, the rebate may be automatically deducted from your bill. If your electricity is billed at a domestic service rate, you will receive your rebate on your bill.
For electricity billed at a commercial rate, the rebate will not be deducted from your bill and an application will be required with receipts. Other forms of home energy, such as cylinder propane, wood pellets or firewood delivered by a vendor not registered to provide an at source rebate, require an application form to be completed, with accompanying receipts.
All energy purchases will require an application form to be completed, with accompanying receipts.
