Montreal –­ The Canadian GeoExchange Coalition welcomed the news that the Quebec government will continue its RénoClimat incentive program through to 2021.

The energy-efficiency renovation program RénoClimat provides up to $5,365 to homeowners seeking to upgrade, save, and build value through highly efficient and renewable technologies like GeoExchange.

“While many business owners can benefit directly from improved cash flow and the value of choosing GeoExchange, these incentives can also help put renewable, efficient GeoExchange in the hands of lower- and middle-income Quebeckers, helping spread our technology’s benefits and build economic activity,” said Nathalie Tremblay, CGC vice-chair, in a news release.

“Programs like Rénoclimat and Rénovert are critically important to our advanced renewable technology and to our industry at this moment,” said Ted Kantrowitz, CGC chief executive officer.

When paired with renewable hydropower in particular, GeoExchange systems provide carbon-free heating and cooling to homeowners and business owners across Quebec and across the country, the release said.

In order to receive the incentive for installation of a GeoExchange system through RénoClimat, energy audits must be conducted and systems must earn CGC System Certification.

Those seeking more information on the process, in English or in French, are invited to contact CGC or refer to geoexchange.ca for further information.
