New GreenON Rebates will cover:
In addition to the renovation rebates, homeowners and tenants can access a $100 smart thermostat rebate through a partnership with Save on Energy.
The province is also launching GreenON Support, a free over-the-phone service offering impartial advice from energy experts to help consumers learn how they can save money and reduce their carbon footprint through home upgrades.

Making it easier and more affordable for people to fight climate change at home is part of Ontario's plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change. The plan includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.
" No matter where you live or work in Ontario, fighting climate change can be as easy as changing a light bulb, switching your thermostat or making other home improvements that cut your energy bills. Knowing that so many of our daily choices and actions at home contribute to greenhouse gas pollution, a program like GreenON Rebates will make it easy and more affordable for people to fight climate change by choosing low-carbon ways to improve their homes."
- Chris Ballard
Minister of the Environment and Climate Change
" Now, through GreenON Rebates, we are empowering consumers to help fight climate change by reducing energy usage at home. GreenON Rebates enables Ontario homeowners and tenants to access rebates on home renovations that will save them money and reduce their carbon footprint."
