The City of Toronto is exploring ways to help families save money on energy bills by improving the energy efficiency of their homes. Upgrading insulation and replacing an old inefficient furnace are examples of cost-effective improvements that can cut energy bills and improve home comfort. However, the high upfront cost, lack of financing options and the complexity of managing these projects can make these investments challenging for many.
Two public events are planned to help you learn more about the proposed program and provide your input. Each event will include a presentation by City staff, discussion with community groups and interested residents, followed by an interactive workshop. We will discuss what role the City can play to help address these barriers and increase the uptake of home energy retrofits. Your input will inform a report to City Council that will outline the best way for the City to proceed with this program.
