Want to improve the energy efficiency of your home and save money?
Today the Government of Canada and the Government of Nova Scotia announced the NEW 2018 Instant Rebate program, which will empower residents across the province to purchase products that improve the energy efficiency of their homes!
Sean Fraser, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, and Minister Derek Mombourquette, joined us in Dartmouth to make the announcement. The funding comes from the Government of Canada’s Low Carbon Economy Fund, which has allocated up to $56 million to Nova Scotia for programs that fight climate change and drive clean growth.
The Instant Rebate program will provide rebates on the purchase of products—such as LED lights, motion sensors, and electrical power bars—and energy efficient appliances—such as washers and refrigerators. It will also provide rebates for smart thermostats to help homeowners who heat their homes with oil cut their energy bills.
Under the program, folks in Nova Scotia will be able to save $$ on the purchase price of these products and lower their energy costs.
EXAMPLE: the instant rebate on the purchase of a smart thermostat is $75! The average energy savings per year for an oil-heated household that adds a smart thermostat is up to $150! It all adds up!
