The Province has launched its Green Ontario Fund, a new not-for-profit provincial agency that is delivering programs and rebates to help reduce energy costs in homes and businesses across Ontario. The agency is part of Ontario's Climate Change Action Plan and is funded by proceeds from the province's cap on pollution and carbon market. Residents can access all potential incentives from local utilities and municipal programs by entering their postal code. The program is also available for small and large businesses.

See also the Union Gas web site, and more to come from IESO and the Ontario Climate Change Action Plan.

Notice: The Province has since cancelled the Green Ontario Fund. Rebates will be honoured for homeowners who submit an application by Sept. 30 or who have a signed work agreement with a participating contractor for work to be completed by Aug. 31.
