Breaks On Retrofits And Appliances Help Homeowners And The Environment
TORONTO, Sept. 28 /CNW/ - The Ontario Liberals are enlisting homeowners
who choose to green their homes by helping them save money when they make them
more energy efficient, says Premier Dalton McGuinty.
"Ontarians want their province to be a world leader in the fight against
climate change," McGuinty said.
"We have one of the most ambitious plans in North America to fight
climate change, but we need each and every Ontarian to do their part. That's
why we are offering financial incentives to make going green more affordable."
- Receive up to $150 towards a home energy audit, which will identify
what in your home is wasting energy, and what can be done about it
- Get up to $5,000 for home energy retrofits - including things like
insulation Energy Star qualified furnaces, and solar powered hot water
- Buy Energy Star light bulbs and appliances and not pay a cent of
retail sales tax
- Get a retail sales tax rebate on qualifying wind and solar equipment.
"In other words, when you go green, you'll get green. And you'll help
ensure Ontario does its part in the fight against climate change," McGuinty
Earlier today, McGuinty announced a new property tax grant of up to $500
for seniors, to help them stay in their own homes.
"We're talking today about something really important to us, and that's
what home means to Ontario families," McGuinty said.
"Our opponents' negative attacks won't help our homeowners and they won't
green our province. But, working together, we will."
