As if the benefits of converting your home to becoming more energy efficient weren’t already enough, the Green Ontario Fund has added another major incentive for making the switch - government rebates on windows. North Bay homeowners looking to take advantage of these new Ontario government rebates will get up to $500 for every high-performance window up to a maximum of $5,000.
Here’s how the government rebate on energy-efficient windows works:
- Purchase and install your new windows through Northwood, an official certified contractor with the Green Ontario Fund

- Once the installation has been verified and proof of purchase has been received, a rebate cheque will be sent to you within 8-12 weeks
