    1. This is an information session for those who are interested in making improvements (retrofits) to their home to make it more energy efficient, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve comfort for the home’s occupants. The session and the retrofits are not mandatory. Should you choose to carry out retrofits, the homeowner pays for them. However, you can qualify for up to $5,000 through the Home Efficiency Rebate through Enbridge. In addition, on Sept. 28, City Council approved staff’s proposal to work with the Centre for Climate Change Management at Mohawk College to develop a deep energy retrofit program. Further details will be posted at burlington.ca/environment and on this blog when available.
