Event Details

10 residential energy saving retrofit case studies funded by the Multifamily Energy Efficiency Rebates (MEER) program

Learn how to access up to 40% funding for your own multi-unit residential retrofits, even if they are already completed.

GreenSaver MEER

Up to 40% funding for multi-unit residential energy efficiency retrofits available until December 31

The MEER program is a province-wide initiative funded by the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) and managed by GreenSaver. Multifamily Energy Efficiency Rebates are financial incentives offered to building owners and managers for undertaking energy efficiency upgrades in their buildings.

The webinar will present case studies on various types of retrofits; building envelope, HVAC systems, lighting, appliances, elevators, controls etc. We will look at the financial benefits of reduced capital costs and operational savings, the energy savings, other “soft” benefits, owner motivation, tenant engagement, practical considerations of retrofitting inhabited buildings, and considerations of codes and regulations that may have had an impact.
