Ontario’s incoming Progressive Conservative government is scrapping a signature green initiative of the previous Liberal regime.
The Green Energy Fund, which offered thousands of dollars in rebates to homeowners and businesses who completed energy-efficient renovations, has been shut down.
The Liberal government launched the program in 2017 with $377 million in revenues from its cap-and-trade program, which premier-designate Doug Ford has vowed to scrap.
The Liberals’ last budget earmarked another $1.7 billion for the program in the coming years.https://ottawa.ctvnews.ca/province-scraps-green-ontario-fund-1.3980209
