Four easy steps to a retrofit grant

Four easy steps to get your ecoENERGY Retrofit grant

Take advantage of the ecoENERGY Retrofit grant to make your home more energy efficient and help you save money. To qualify, follow these four easy steps:

  1. Before you undertake any energy efficiency renovations, hire a Natural Resources Canada certified energy advisor to perform an energy evaluation of your home. The advisor will give you a pre-retrofit evaluation report and an EnerGuide rating label for your home.
  2. Select your improvements and implement the recommended energy upgrades, leaving time to ensure your post-retrofit evaluation is completed within 18 months or before March 31, 2011, (whichever comes first and subject to available funding).
  3. Call your energy advisor to perform your post-retrofit evaluation, to confirm your new energy rating and to submit your grant application.
  4. Wait 90 days from the date of your post-retrofit evaluation to receive your cheque.

So a property owner can retro fit a property and receive a check? That is nice, but it looks like the program is closed to any new entrys. Was there a limit on the Grant or can a home owner make money by using this program?

The original program has now completed and the Federal grants are not currently available, there are however provincial grants which are still available, plus the RRAP grants and other CMHC grants as well.

Thanks for the comments.

Robert--You have been busy posting this week.  I just scrolled through several and stopped here to leave a comment or two.  Lethbridge looks like a great place to live per the stats and listings posted.  This retrofit program is similar to our tax credits for energy upgrades.  Guess we need to get busy and replace a few old windows. 

Later--Mary

Yes Mary, I had the entire long weekend here with nothing to do but work on my blog and websites.  It was great and a good time to catch up.
