Register today: The Road to 2030 – Part 2 – How Incentive Programs Benefit Contractors

August 29, 2022 | By HPAC Magazine

Join us Thursday, September 8 between 11 am - Noon (eastern time) for a free online panel discussion about how funding and incentive programs are driving activity and how contractors can benefit.

The Federal 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan outlines an ambitious goal of reducing carbon emissions across Canada by 40% (from 2005 levels) by 2030.

The plan introduces the Canada Green Buildings Strategy, which will include new policy, programs, incentives and standards to drive a massive retrofit of existing building stock, and new construction to zero-carbon standards.

How are Existing Incentive Programs Performing?

In May 2021 the Federal Government introduced the Canada Greener Homes Grant (up to $5K) and followed that up this past June with the Canada Greener Homes Loan program (up to $40K interest-free). On top of these programs all levels of government (federal, municipal and provincial) and utilities are providing funding assistance to both home owners and larger building owners.

How can mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) contractors benefit?

Join us for Part 2 of this special, timely series of panel discussions on how the industry—specifically mechanical and electrical contractors, both residential and commercial—can better understand the incentive programs in operation today and how they can benefit from these incentives.

This live discussion is taking place Thursday, September 8 between 11 am – Noon (eastern time) and will include time for questions and answers.

Our special guest panelists include:

  • Kimble Costain, deputy director, Greener Homes Division, NRCan
  • Martin Luymes, vice-president, government & stakeholder relations, HRAI
  • Jesse Fleming, director general, programs directorate Climate Change Branch, Environment and Climate Change Canada
  • Pushpinder Rana, senior manager – commercial products & industry relations, Mitsubishi Electric Sales Canada

Join us, and bring your questions to this free online panel discussion, being presented by HPAC magazine, Electrical Business magazine, and Energy Manager Canada, and sponsored by Mitsubishi Electric Heating and Cooling.
