Staying at home more during COVID-19 can put pressure on your electricity bill. If the cost of energy-saving upgrades is out of reach, Ontario’s AffordAbility Fund Trust is here for you. We are working with the Government of Ontario and community services to help you improve your home’s energy efficiency with free energy-saving upgrades, which can lower home energy use and your electricity bill. You may qualify for free upgrades; including ENERGY STAR® certified LEDs and appliances (including fridges), insulation and weather stripping.
