Have you heard of the Energy Savings Rebate Program? In August 2019, the federal government announced the Energy Savings Rebate Program. Up to $200 million is being allocated to retailers in Ontario to sell energy star certified appliances. The incentive is to offer consumers 25% off energy-efficient products. The goal is focused on helping Ontario residents purchase energy-efficient appliances. The major retailers include Home Depot, Lowes, Costco, Rona, and Canadian Appliance Source.
Canadian Energy Savings Rebate Program
How can Canadians help fight climate change? According to Catherine McKenna, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change,
“The Energy Savings Rebate program will make sure Ontarians can fight climate change in an affordable way, saving them up to $1000 on energy-efficient home equipment from water heaters to fridges and stoves—the kind of products we use every day—and ultimately saving people money on energy costs, too. When Ontario canceled our jointly funded climate programs last year, we made sure to reinvest the money in projects that help Ontarians continue to be a part of the solution to climate change. Our investments will make sure Canada is a leader in the clean economy of the future so our children and grandchildren have good jobs, clean air, clean water, and a healthy future.”
