Industry News | Windows
In mid-December, the Ontario government launched a new program offering rebates on the purchase and installation of select high-performance windows. This program, called GreenON, was created to promote the reduction of energy costs and fight climate change. It offers 500$ per window replacement, and up to $5000 per house.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
- Available for single homes, semi-detached and townhomes already built (not on new construction)
- Available on full-frame installation only (no retrofit installs allowed)
- Bay and bow windows are eligible (but a bay/bow counts as 1 opening)
- Registered Heritage homes: GreenON is working on the parameters of the program
- Windows must be bought and installed by a Window Wise certified installer.
- All installers must be certified to install (not just one individual on the team or in the company).
- The Window Wise installer must have a showroom.
- Certification is not retroactive. If the installer is not certified at time of installation, the rebate will not be given.
- The installer is responsible for submitting the GreenOn rebate claim.
