Subject: Launching the Ontario Green Investment Fund
I was very happy to join Minister Chiarelli in Ottawa to announce the launch of the Ontario Green Investment Fund and a first investment of $100 million to help homeowners reduce their energy bills and cut greenhouse gas emissions.
Historically, every dollar invested in natural gas efficiency has resulted in $1.50 to $4 in savings for natural gas consumers. This investment is also expected to save an equivalent of 1.6 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.
In partnership with Enbridge Gas Distribution and Union Gas, the program will help about 37,000 homeowners conduct audits to identify energy-saving opportunities and then complete retrofits, such as replacing furnaces, water heaters and upgrading insulation. It will also help spur innovation and create jobs in clean energy industries.
Full program details, including program start date, eligible project details and amounts, will be available in the coming months.
If you have any questions regarding this funding announcement, please do not hesitate to contact my office – firstname.lastname@example.org or 613 722 6414.
