18 Aug Ontario Homeowners Use New Solar Program To Go Solar At No Cost. Here’s How…
Installing solar panels can cost the average Ontario homeowner $25,000, making it too expensive for most people to go solar. The good news is that a new state-funded initiative wants to change that. This new program aims to help middle class homeowners make the switch to solar at no upfront cost through rebates and incentives.
Funded by the state of Ontario as well as private non-profits to promote alternative energy, this Program’s directive is to get solar panels installed on the roofs of those who cannot afford the high upfront costs. This program, which launched in early July, will use the rebates and incentives set aside from the state as well as money raised by companies who want to lower our carbon footprint.
Through this program, homeowners receive solar panels, full professional installation and a dramatically reduced (if not completely eliminated) electric bill with no out of pocket expense. According to initial reports, this program is saving Ontario homeowners an average of $1,016 per year.* Plus, if you own the panels, a new solar system can increase your property’s value by as much as 20%. Finally a real stimulus homeowners have needed for years!
The goal is to install solar panels for 25,000 middle class homeowners in Ontario by the end of 2017. As of January 27, 2017, they have already filled over 70% of this quota and could run out by the end of this month. If you’re interested in this program, you need to act now.
