$400-million ecoEnergy Retrofit-Homes program shut down
February 13, 2012
The ecoENERGY Retrofit-Homes program was shut down two months earlier than expected. The news appeared near the bottom of a good news press release from the office of Minister of Natural Resources Canada Joe Oliver, announcing an additional $117 million in funding over three years for the ecoENERGY Efficiency Initiatives. NRCan stated that the program reached its goal of 250,000 registered homeowners, so the program would not accept any new registrations. NRCan stated that the deadline for registered homeowners to get their post-retrofit evaluations and receive a grant will be extended to June 30, 2012, but all retrofit renovations still have to be completed by March 31, 2012.
