Minister McKenna is learning about Clean’s Home Warming program which provides an opportunity for low income Nova Scotians to increase the energy efficiency of their homes.
Hon. Catherine McKenna: So tell me about your Home Warming project.
Sean Kelly Managing Coordinator of Marketing Clean Foundation:
Sure. The Home Warming program is a joint program with Clean Foundation and also Efficiency Nova Scotia, and what we do is we help lower income Nova Scotians feel more comfortable in their homes, save… and save money, and we do this through increasing the energy efficiency of their homes. We offer free retrofits. So we really look at it as a win-win-win. They feel more comfortable in their homes – so warm in the winter, cold in the summer – they save money – quite a bit of money – and it helps reduce their carbon footprint, so it really is – excuse the cliché – a win-win-win.
Hon. Catherine McKenna: Awesome. Thanks.
