Eligible Ontario home owners can get free smart thermostat home installations.

Ontario is helping people across the province save money and fight climate change through the Green.

Environment and Climate Change Minister Chris Ballard announced on August 30 that early registration is open for the new GreenON Installations program.

Residents of detached, semi-detached, townhomes, or row houses can now have energy-conserving smart thermostats installed in their homes free of charge through Ontario’s Green Ontario Fund.

Interested and eligible households can register to have a Green Ontario Fund-trained technician visit and install a smart thermostat without spending a penny.

Advice and tips as well as personalized suggestions for additional energy-saving upgrades will be provided by the technicians.

The provincial government is using cap and trade revenue to establish the Green Ontario Fund, a new not-for-profit provincial agency that will deliver programs and rebates to help reduce energy costs in homes and businesses.
