This new program allows homeowners and business owners to access funding making solar energy and energy storage systems more affordable, thus empowering them to generate their own electricity and better manage their energy usage. All this, while helping to fight climate change and transition Ontario towards a clean energy and innovation economy.
Approximately $90 million has been designated towards this program, which is expected to launch this summer. It will further build upon Ontario’s climate leadership and its solar success story, which not only created over 5,000 local jobs, but also continues to make the province a global leader in solar.
“The Ontario government has demonstrated its commitment to both creating jobs and a cleaner environment with the announcement of this new solar energy and energy storage program,” explained Thomas Timmins, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA).
“Ontario electricity consumers have clearly signaled they want to save money on their electricity bills. With this new program, Ontarians can affordably access innovative solar and energy storage solutions to achieve lower energy costs,” remarked Wesley Johnston, Vice President of CanSIA.
Interested homeowners and business owners are encouraged to register online to receive updates regarding the solar energy and energy storage rebate program, including when qualified contractors have been confirmed.
