It does noy come as much of a surprise for those following the history of the ecoENERGY program, but the Federal Government has stopped taking new applications for the ecoENERGY program. The deadline was suppose to be March 12, 2012 for an open application to be wrapped up. Which allowed people to apply, get the audit, make the changes, get the second audit, and submit for the grants right up until that date. But now only applications that are currently open can apply for the grants.
As of right now, it does not look promising for a third round in the ecoENERGY program. This is the second time the Federal Government has cancelled the program early and we do not think it will be coming back anytime shortly.
At the same time...Geothermal still saves you money...Think about it. Although these grants are gone the cost of heating your home is still on the rise. Maybe this is the year you do something about it.
