West Bolton SNAP is developing its first Home Retrofit Program to help homeowners reduce energy and water consumption at home.
Throughout community consultation on the Action Plan development residents expressed that they would like to participate in a program to reduce their energy and water consumption at home and save money. In response to that SNAP is developing a Home Retrofit Program that will test methods of increasing the number of suburban households undertaking Home Retrofits with the aim of reducing consumption and the resulting GHG emissions. The project will test methods of increasing the number of suburban households undertaking Home Energy Retrofits with the aim of reducing residential energy consumption and the resulting GHG emissions.
The Home Retrofit Program will be launched in spring 2018 and will use locally targeted marketing, community events, and face-to-face Home Retrofit Consultations to engage households in West Bolton. Findings related to the experiences and behaviours of the participants will help inform future approaches to reducing household GHG emissions in other Ontario communities.
SNAP aims to accelerate the implementation of environmental improvements and urban renewal at the neighbourhood scale. It takes an integrated approach to overcome urban retrofit challenges and address a broad range of objectives with locally tailored solutions.
