Final report presented to the Environment, Infrastructure & Community Services Committee on March 3rd
Staff from the City and the Centre for Climate Change Management at Mohawk College co-presented the final report on the Better Homes Burlington Home Energy Efficiency Retrofit Project to the Environment, Infrastructure & Community Services Committee on March 3rd. Council approved staff to proceed to the next steps to develop a business case for the 2023 budget process for the resources required to support home energy efficiency loans for homeowners. The program will make available loans of up to $10,000 to cover the costs of the installation of air source heat pumps and leak sealing. The program also entails a virtual delivery centre to provide guidance to homeowners on the available measures and incentive programs to help them improve the energy efficiency of their homes and reduce their carbon footprint.
A follow up report will be presented to council in 2023 pending budget approval for the program to outline the details of the program requirements.
