Public notice: Guelph Greener Homes program coming soon

Guelph, Ont., April 22, 2023 – Looking to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your carbon footprint? The Guelph Greener Homes program can help you do that.

To support Guelph’s Race to Zero goal of becoming a net zero carbon community by 2050, the program will offer a zero-interest loan of up to $50,000 for residential property owners in Guelph to help cover the costs of energy-efficient upgrades. This initiative will lower greenhouse gas emissions, offer potential energy and utility cost savings, and provide the opportunity for more affordable low carbon upgrades.

The Guelph Greener Homes program is set to launch later this spring. Sign up to be the first to know when the program launches at
