In Canada, ecoEnergy program gets renewed

The ecoEnergy Retroft Homes program will help homeowners save on improvements that benefit the environment. 

Under the deal, grants of up to $5,000 are available to homeowners who make their homes more energy efficient. So far, according to the program's organizers, participating homeowners have saved 20% on their energy bills.

Projects purchased after June 6 and installed after a pre-retrofit evaluation are eligible for a grant. The window of opportunity closes March 31, 2012.
