Tune-Up Assistance Program SaskEnergy’s Tune-Up Assistance Program (TAP) assisted 1,415 homeowners in 38 Saskatchewan communities in 2022-23. Through TAP, income-qualified homeowners can apply for a free home heating tune-up. The program provides up to $400 worth of products and services to each qualified homeowner, including a free SaskEnergy Network home heating tune-up, up to $200 in repairs, two furnace filters, and a carbon monoxide alarm. TAP, which is offered through SaskEnergy Network Members, helps customers meet their home energy needs safely and efficiently, and brings awareness to the importance of carbon monoxide safety. More than 3,700 customers have received assistance through TAP since the program began in 2017.

Investing in market transformation and innovative technology

In 2022-23, SaskEnergy invested $420,000 toward projects that assist customers in reducing their environmental footprints. This investment included education sessions, local technology demonstrations, and providing grants for the development of energy efficiency technology. Since 2018, SaskEnergy has been a member of the NGIF, which seeks applications for funding from companies that are developing technology to reduce emissions related to natural gas. Projects fall under the categories of waste heat utilization, hydrogen, small-scale carbon capture and utilization, gas heat pumps and renewable natural gas. REBATES FOR CUSTOMERS TO REDUCE EMISSIONS AND SAVE MONEY SaskEnergy provided an additional $1 million in funding toward customer energy efficiency programs in 2022-23, resulting in more than $4 million in rebates for residential and commercial customers. A total of $3.5 million in rebates was provided to homeowners, through the Residential Equipment Replacement Rebate program, to purchase high- efficiency furnaces, water heaters, boilers, combi boilers and heat recovery ventilators. Another $528,000 in rebates was provided to commercial customers to install new energy efficient appliances, and for a new hydronic additive rebate for boilers to help commercial customers reduce emissions while still using their current boiler systems. Through our natural gas conservation programs, customers reduced their annual energy consumption by 277,600 gigajoules (GJ), avoiding 19,225 tonnes CO 2 e of emissions.


You’ve taken a step towards a more energy-efficient home. Don’t stop now. We can help you find even more savings on your energy use and bills.

“My plumber called me about it and said I should go ahead and apply. Later, I received a message from SaskEnergy that I was one of the people picked! Times are much harder now, and everything is more expensive. I appreciated it so much.”
