What is a “deep energy retrofit”?

A deep energy retrofit (DER) is a home renovation that reduces your home’s energy usage by at least 50 per cent.
A deep retrofit involves a strategic series of steps that helps improve your home's energy efficiency and reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions! A deep energy retrofit project can be done all at once or step by step over several years, depending on your unique situation, needs, and the characteristics of your home.
