NRCan Closes ecoENERGY to New Registrants On Sunday January 29th, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) Minister Joe Oliver announced via the NRCan website and by way of a news release that the federal government would be officially closing the popular ecoENERGY Retrofit-Homes program to new registrants.   The sudden closing of the program comes two months before its official end date on March 31, 2012. The government has limited participation to 250,000 registered homeowners. The NRCan website states the following: The program has successfully reached its goal of 250,000 registered homeowners. As planned, the program is no longer accepting new registrations. To help ensure registered homeowners have time to get their post-retrofit evaluations and receive a grant, the Government of Canada is extending the deadline to June 30, 2012, for homeowners to complete post-retrofit evaluations and apply for a grant. All retrofit renovations must still be completed by March 31, 2012. For more info
