Ontario launches the Green Ontario Fund
September 08, 2017
Register at GreenON.ca for a No-Cost Smart Thermostat with Installation
Ontario is helping people across the province save money and fight climate change through the Green Ontario Fund - a new not-for-profit provincial agency that will deliver programs and rebates to help reduce energy costs in homes and businesses. The agency is part of Ontario’s Climate Change Action Plan and is funded by proceeds from the province’s cap on pollution and carbon market.
Chris Ballard, Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, made the announcement today and encouraged people to visit GreenON.ca to find out how small changes can help homes and businesses save money while reducing greenhouse gas pollution.
This includes the new GreenON Installations program, which opened early registration today at: https://greenon.ca/GreenON-Installations.
Interested and eligible households can register to have a Green Ontario Fund-trained technician visit and install a smart thermostat at no cost. The technician will also provide advice and tips as well as personalized suggestions for additional energy-saving upgrades.
More GreenON programs for residents, businesses and industry will be announced in the coming months.
No matter where you live or work in Ontario, fighting climate change can be as easy as changing a light bulb, switching your thermostat or making other home improvements that cut your energy bills.
Making it easier and more convenient for homeowners and businesses to reduce their carbon foot print and save money is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
