SWITCH Open Meeting - May 6, 2022
Soren Christianson
and Cedric Pepelea: UNDERSTANDING BETTER HOMES KINGSTON PROGRAM LAUNCH


This presentation will guide you through a new Kingston home energy retrofit program. 

  • Better Homes Kingston, launched in April 2022, is a Home Energy Retrofit program offering no-interest property loans, incentives and rebates to enable Kingston Residents to reduce GHG emissions and Energy Consumption in their homes, with the potential to also save money on their utility bill.

  • To qualify for the program, residents  must own a property in Kingston.

  • Through the Better Homes Kingston Program, the City aims to help retrofit 20 to 50 per cent of single-family homes built prior to 1991. Residents who take advantage of this flexible, no-interest property loan can repay the amount over a period of up to 20 years or at any time without penalty. People who have homes built after 1991 may still apply to the program.

  • Soren Christianson, Program Manager, and Cedric Pepelea, the Energy Coach will guide the SWITCH open meeting participants with program details in the presentation and subsequent Q and A session.

  • Program details are available at this link.
