Government of Ontario: Select Residents Can Get a FREE Smart Thermostat

Save money on electricity and make your home smarter with this new initiative from the Government of Ontario, because select homeowners or renters can get a free smart thermostat through the new GreenON Installations Program!

This program is only available to homeowners or renters in a single-detached, semi-detached, townhome or row home in Ontario. Simply register on the GreenON Installations Program page and a representative will contact you at a later time to arrange an installation appointment. Eligible renters will also need to submit a landlord consent form before installation.

Ecobee, Honeywell and Nest smart thermostats will be available through this program and both the thermostat and installation will be provided free of charge. Note that homes with existing smart thermostats cannot have thermostats replaced through this program.

Early registration is open now and installations will begin this fall. Only 100,000 free thermostats are available and will be issued on a first-come, first-serve basis — click here to learn more about the GreenON Installations Program.
