Toronto, ON may make low flow mandatory and cancel toilet rebates

Toronto is just one of the handful of Ontario municipalities offering a rebate for homeowners who’ll install a water-conserving toilet this year, but a new proposal from the Premier’s office is planning on making them mandatory. If this proposal is accepted, it’s a measure that would likely cancel the rebates. Other provincial municipalities, such as Innisville, have determined that rebate and incentive water conservation programs would be far too costly, and in Innisville alone it’s estimated that it would cost them at least $1.6 million to implement one. Meanwhile, Barrie’s toilet replacement rebate program is barely staying afloat and city councillors recently approved a $50,000 boost because of unexpected costs.

Currently, the Toronto rebate program promises up to $75 if you replace a water-wasting toilet with a water conserving one, but the legislation put forth would make it mandatory for all retailers across the province to sell only low-water toilets (six-litres as opposed to 13-litres) by January of next year. Toilets generally use up 30 per cent of a home’s water and annually, a low-flush toilet cuts this water consumption by half.

Coincidentally, on the same day the new measures were proposed the country’s largest retailer of hardware and home renovation products, RONA, announced that it would no longer sell any toilets with volumes that are more than six-litres.

This proposal comes soon after the federal government cancelled the Canadian ecoENERGY retrofit rebate program, which offered homeowners up to $5,000 in grants and rebates when they made energy-saving renovations before March 31, 2011. For now the provincial programs are still in effect, including the Ontario Home Energy Savings Program, which similar to the federal program offers homeowners up to $5,000 in grants and rebates for energy-efficient renovations.

The Comox Valley Regional District has announced two water conservation rebate opportunities that will help achieve a 27-per-cent reduction in water consumption by 2014.

Property owners who replace old, water-guzzling toilets built before September 2008 with high-efficiency (4.8 litre/flush) or dual flush toilets, approved by Canadian Standards Association, will be eligible for a $75 rebate.

There is a maximum of two toilet rebates per installation address. Residents who received a toilet rebate under the 2009 program are eligible for one additional rebate for a toilet replaced under the 2010 program. Funding available this year will allow for the replacement of 1,600 toilets.

The CVRD will honour rebate applications for toilets purchased under the 2009 pilot program, including six-litre flush toilets, as long as the sales receipt for the new toilet, and the recycling receipt for the old toilet, are dated between Aug. 15, 2009 and April 30, 2010. All unfunded 2009 applications must be submitted before June 1, 2010.

Residents will also be eligible for one rain barrel or cistern rebate under the 2010 program. A rebate of up to $50 will apply to the purchase of a rain barrel or cistern between 150 and 499 litres, and up to a $150 rebate for those equal to or greater than 500 litres.

The rebate programs apply to homes connected to the Comox Valley water system, including the Town of Comox, City of Courtenay and the Arden, Comox Valley, England Road, Marsden/Camco, and Greaves Crescent water local service areas.

For full eligibility requirements, visit http://www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/rebates. The first step will be to review 2009 applications that came in after last year’s funding was exhausted. Cheques will be mailed to those who qualify. 2010 applications will be processed for those who qualify on a first-come, first-serve basis while funding lasts.

Application submissions do not guarantee a rebate.

Halton Residential toilet rebate program

– Six-litre toilets purchased after December 31, 2010, will no longer be eligible for a rebate in Halton Region.

Halton-approved six-litre toilets purchased between January 1, 2007 and December 31, 2010 will remain eligible for a rebate, even if submitted to Halton Region after January 1, 2011, while the program is in operation. For toilets purchased after December 31, 2010, Halton will offer a rebate on WaterSense® labelled high-efficiency toilets only.

Halton Region encourages residents to maximize water efficiency in their homes, and will continue to promote the installation of the most water efficient toilet models available. All Halton-Approved toilets under the revised 2011 criteria will be eligible for a $75 rebate, as per the Terms and Conditions of the program.

The program continues to be extremely popular and in order to allow participation by as many Halton residents as possible; Halton’s program continues to be limited to a total of one toilet rebate per single-family home.

WaterSense® criteria includes most HETs with a maximum allowable single-flush volume of 4.8 litres, plus most dual flush toilets. In addition, WaterSense® toilets demonstrate sustained water savings, and are equipped with chlorine resistant trim components.
