Ed the Energy Miser was dancin’ on July 14th, 2011 after hearing that Ottawa renewed the ecoENERGY Retrofit – Homes program, an initiative that provides grants of up to $5,000 to help make energy efficient home upgrades.
We replaced doors, windows last year (see video below) and installed a heat pump. We kept the gas furnace as a backup.
To benefit from the program this time around, homeowners must register with the federal government on the Natural Resources Canada website.
An energy audit must be done before and then after the upgrades are competed and all of it must be completed within eight months.
Seriously, if you haven’t taken advantage of the grants yet, you really need to do so… the feds have only allocated a paltry $400 million bucks and then they’re going to can it AGAIN. A-holes.
