         Replace windows and skylights with models that are ENERGY STAR® qualified for your climate
         zone (*per unit replaced).

Rebates for windows and skylights are based on the number of Rough Openings (RO) in which windows or skylights were replaced between the pre- and post-retrofit evaluations. Each RO is counted as one window or skylight. An RO is defined as the structurally stable opening created by the builder for the installation of the window unit (i.e., framing and glazing) or skylight. (Note that a bay window, which may be made up of several windows, is regarded as one RO).

To be eligible for a rebate, proof of ENERGY STAR® qualification of windows, doors and skylights is required, such as the presence of an ENERGY STAR® label on all of the replacement windows, doors or skylights indicating they are ENERGY STAR® qualified for the house's climate zone. If the labels are removed by the installer, you should request them as proof or request a copy of an invoice indicating:

. The brand/product name

. The Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) model reference number or the manufacturer's model code

. The climate zone for which the windows, doors or skylights are qualified

Important Notes

1.

To be eligible to retrofit grants covered under the Ontario Home Energy Savings Program, homeowners must complete a pre-retrofit home energy evaluation by an NRCan certified energy advisor before starting any retrofit projects.

2.

When replacing ANY of the equipment listed in the grant chart, the new equipment must have an efficiency rating higher than that of the original equipment. The second system must be of the same type and efficiency. New installations are not eligible in cases where improvements listed state "Replace".

3.

The Ontario Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MEI) reserves the right to revise the information contained in this document, including the grant amounts and the eligibility requirements, without notice. The payment of grants is subject to the availability of funds. Please refer to www.Ontario.ca/HomeEnergy for the most up-to-date information.

4.

The Ontario Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MEI) does not endorse the services of any contractor or any specific product and accepts no liability in the selection of materials, products, contractors or performance or workmanship.

5.

All upgrades or renovations must meet local codes and by-laws. Before undertaking upgrades or renovations, find out about the appropriate products and installation techniques to ensure that your home's building envelope and indoor air quality will not be compromised.

6.

Renovations that are part of an addition made to a property following the pre-retrofit evaluation are not eligible for a retrofit grant and may reduce the grant amount for the improvement done on the existing portion of the house. Consult your energy advisor.
