The more upgrades you complete, the bigger your incentives and energy savings

In the following example, a program participant "Jane" is deciding how many upgrades to perform.

Jane knows she wants a ductless mini-split heat pump, and her initial Home Energy Evaluation identified several windows that could be replaced. She also has R-20 in her attic (1,000 ft²) and an unfinished basement (1,000 ft²) but she wasn’t sure about the cost until her report showed how much energy she could save.

In order to get the best bang for her buck, she performs all the upgrades at the same time to take advantage of the bundling incentives NB Power has to offer.
