Good Energy program promotes cost-cutting energy productsWritten by Yukon Territory Wednesday, 12 May 2010 20:42
Renewing the Good Energy rebate program will cut greenhouse gas emissions and energy costs for Yukoners, said the territorial government in a press release statement.
“Over the past year we saw the number of applications rise more than 50%,” Energy, Mines and Resources Minister Patrick Rouble said. “This increase shows there is strong desire for energy efficient products.”
In 2009-10, there were 990 applications accepted for a total rebate to Yukoners of $180,700.
“The Good Energy program supports our energy strategy by providing Yukoners the opportunity to replace products with more efficient ones that can reduce energy consumption and costs,” Rouble said. “It also supports Yukon's coordinated approach to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, now and in the future."
Offered through the Energy Solutions Centre, the program provides cash rebates ranging from $100 to $1,200 on solar domestic hot water systems, pellet and wood stoves, oil and propane furnaces and boilers.
