August 30, 2017 - Ontario has created a new not-for-profit agency—the Green Ontario Fund—to deliver programs and rebates that help reduce energy costs in homes and businesses.

The agency is funded by proceeds from the province’s cap-and-trade program.

Residents and business owners are encouraged to visit to find out how small changes can help them save money while reducing pollution. This includes the new GreenON Installations program, which opened early registration today. 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.

Owners and renters of detached, semi-detached, town and row homes can register for the GreenON Installations program through the Green Ontario Fund website. Renters must have their landlords’ permission to register.


More GreenON programs for residents, businesses and industry will be announced in the coming months.
