Latitude51 SunRain Solar collectors received the highest rebate of any of the other main suppliers of collectors we looked at under the Canadian ecoENERGY Incentive program. The Canadian Government ecoENERGY program for commercial solar water heating ended in March 2011. This program was set up to promote commercial solar water heating projects in Canada. This Commercial solar incentive program effectively ended 1st OCTOBER 2010. All applications had to be in before this date. There is always a possibility that the government ecoENERGY Grant will be renewed in some form in the future.
With The new Liberal Party in Power in 2016 we expect to see renewed investment from the Federal level in their recent list of election promise to focus on a Greener Canada
Right now, we have no idea if or when this will happen. Please leave your contact details via the sign-up box (upper right) and we will keep you updated on any future commercial incentives that are available.
