Why Choose Energy Efficiency?
When you make your home more energy efficient, you’re choosing to cut your energy bills while also reducing pollution. Almost one quarter of Ontario’s carbon pollution comes from buildings. In big cities like Toronto, this rises to half.
Simple steps like insulating your home, upgrading your furnace, or installing new windows can make a huge difference in cutting pollution and energy costs.
To help get you started, Ontario offers incentives to make your home more energy efficient, from providing rebates for smart thermostats which can lower your energy use and reduce bills up to 10 per cent, to offering home energy audits which identify the best ways to increase the efficiency of your residence.
Whether you own or rent, you can choose energy efficiency.
