Fuel Switching Included in Ontario Home Energy Conservation Program

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Due to consumer demand, the Ontario Ministry of Energy has made changes to the Ontario Home Energy Conservation Incentive Program (OHECIP). Homeowners who carry out home energy retrofit measures that involve fuel switching and meet the energy savings and greenhouse gas reductions requirements can now participate. Launched by the Ontario government in late-2016, the plan originally did not include appliance upgrades that involved fuel-switching, such as oil to propane. Now fuel switching is accepted where a consumer meets the energy efficiency requirements of the program. Background information about the OHECIP can be viewed in CPA Bulletin 58-2016.
