Act fast to qualify for up to $5,000 in federal grants for energy- and water-efficient home improvements!

The federal ecoEnergy Retrofit Program has been renewed by the federal government, and you’ve got until March 31, 2012 to complete an audit and qualifying fixes, so it’s time to get moving!

What do you need to do? You must have a registration number to be eligible, and must complete a program form to obtain your unique number. Next, before making any updates, you must have a pre-retrofit home energy audit. Your auditor will then suggest qualifying retrofits, and as you complete them, you’ll need to save your receipts to submit for reimbursement.

Get full details on the program by visiting Scotiabank’s EcoLiving website where you’ll find articles on the program and a rebate database that will help you determine which federal, provincial and municipal rebates you may qualify for.
