How Government Grants Work
- Contact a certified energy advisor who will provide a detailed energy audit of your home. The auditor will assess your insulation as well as your furnace, hot water, air conditioner, windows and doors and any other component which could have an impact on your home’s energy conservation. (Complete Roofing Solutions will be happy to arrange this 3rd party audit.).
The cost of the Home Energy Audit will be $300 plus applicable taxes. The Government of Ontario will pay 50% of your first Home Energy Audit, up to $150.00.
- The auditor will complete the pre-retrofit evaluation and advise you on what improvements will provide the desired energy rating for your home. The Provincial Government will match dollar for dollar any rebate from the Federal Government, up to a combined total amount of $10,000.00.
- Once the home improvements have been completed the energy auditor will return to perform a post-retrofit evaluation, which must be performed before March 31, 2011. The charge for the second audit will be $150 plus applicable taxes. Following that, the auditor will submit the request for the appropriate grant monies to the Federal and Provincial Governments. You should expect your cheque in the mail in 90 days.
