Ya, I heard about it on the radio this morning. I don't think its a scam, but who knows what the intent behind it is and how many people will actually get one.

I got through, system is slow as balls though.

This seems too good to be true: https://www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/contentonly?vgnextoid=7e00643063fe7410VgnVCM10000071d60f89RCRD

HELP allows you to avoid the large upfront cost of home energy improvements and pay for them over time. You could be eligible to receive up to $75,000 for your property.

2. HELP financing is attached to the property, not to the property owner. If you sell the property before the loan is repaid, the new owner will assume the balance of the loan and continue to repay it through the property tax bill.

3. You may pay off your HELP loan at any time, without penalty.

4. You'll benefit from low interest rates and longer repayment terms, compared to conventional financing.

5. You can take advantage of incentives to reduce the cost of your projects. An incentive of up to $650 is available from Toronto Hydro for replacing your furnace and air conditioner with high efficiency units. An incentive of up to $1,600 is also available from the Home Energy Conservation (HEC) Program to qualified homeowners.

Please contact the HELP team for more information at homeenergyloan@toronto.ca or 416-392-1826.

The process begins by completing an online application form. Once the required documentation has been submitted and the application has been approved, the homeowner will enter into an agreement with the City to undertake qualifying energy efficiency and water conservation improvements, based on the results of a home energy assessment.

The maximum funding available is up to $75,000.

The City will impose a charge, which will include the cost of the improvements, interest, and an administrative fee - on the participating property.

The homeowner will then repay the loan over a defined term (5, 10, or 15 years).

The payment obligation will be attached to the property, not the owner, and is secured by the City’s priority lien. If a property changes ownership, the new owner would assume the financial obligation and continue to make payments to the City until the special charge is fully paid.

The loan may be repaid at any time, without penalty.

Has anyone read the fine print for this?

Does getting this free thermostat allow them to control your thermostat during peak usage times?

Seems to good to be true .... need more info!

From what I read on rfd, they have no access to control the unit.

Just got an email from them. Basically:

 Quote:
When you are contacted will depend on when you submitted your application and the availability of installers in your area. You may hear from us as early as within a few weeks, or it might take a few more months. This program is very popular, so we thank you for your patience.


I also need to decide between:

ecobee3 lite
Honeywell Lyric™ T6
Nest Thermostat E

Beats me

Just got a phone call from "GreenOn". That's how it will appear on your phone so don't ignore it thinking its spam, I almost did.

They had appointments available tomorrow (Saturday) and all next week. I figured they would be booking a few months out.

They only have a white (circular) Nest and a black (squarish) Ecobee. Not knowing anything about either product I went with the Nest as I don't want a black eyesore on the wall.

The more I think about it, the more I'm inclined to not give Big Brother the opportunity to spy on me. A smart thermostat is a novelty I would never pay for. It just doesn't appeal enough for me to pay money for one. The only reason I signed up was to get it for free. But if that allows them "into my home" whenever they choose, then yea, perhaps not.

Just curious in how "they" would gain access?

Would this also apply to any smart thermostat installed diy or contractor?

They sell tin foil hats too.

A thermostat is the least of your worries. Better ditch that smart phone and never use a computer again.
