GreenSaver reminds Ontario households the countdown is on for the EcoEnergy Program

Wednesday, March 16th 2011 10:36:58am

Media Advisory

GreenSaver reminds 2,000 Ontario households they are still eligible to get EcoEnergy program benefits  before the March 31 deadline.

The EcoEnergy home energy retrofit program comes to an end on March 31, 2011.

Photo Opportunity:
GreenSaver can supply on-site opportunity to video how energy audits are done, by GreenSaver staff that have completed thousands of home audits.

Interview Opportunity:
Vladan Veljovic, President and CEO of GreenSaver is available to speak about issues related to the  EcoEnergy program ending, how homeowners can meet the program deadline, how home owners can save energy and the future of energy efficiency programs.

GreenSaver has sent written reminders  to each of 2,000 Ontariohouseholds  with open audit files. The correspondence reminds people they have two weeks left to complete their participation in the EcoEnergy program and receive their incentive payment.  

These 2,000 households have completed the initial home energy audit but not the final audit. The final audit follows completion of energy efficient retrofits and triggers the incentive payment.  The 2,000 are in GreenSaver’s service area in the GTA and parts of southwest Ontario (between and around Niagara, Hamilton and London). GreenSaver estimates there could be tens of thousands open files outstanding across Ontario.

GreenSaver have extended their hours of operation to ensure the maximum number of households can have their final audit completed in the last days of the program and benefit from the incentive payment. While GreenSaver will make every effort to help all eligible homeowners meet the deadline, the time, geography and capacity limitations mean that service will be on a first come, first serve basis and may not be available in all areas.
