The AffordAbility Fund

The Affordability Fund

 The AffordAbility Fund Program has concluded and is no longer accepting applications. We would like to thank everyone for their participation. 

The goal of the program was to help Ontarians who did not qualify for low-income programs but wanted to conserve energy to help reduce their electricity bills. The AFT program has had an overall positive impact on the energy use within our community. PUC Services and the AFT were able to provide energy saving measures to 6,800 residences in Sault Ste Marie which, represented 8% of the total provincial uptake for the program.

If you are experiencing issues with your appliances, thermostats or heat pumps, please contact the manufacturer of the appliance you have received. The number is on the back of the user manual that was given to you on the day of installation. We have a few different home appliance providers including GE, Frigidaire and Moffat. For thermostats, the companies used by AFT are either from Ecobee or STELPRO. Once you’ve contacted the manufacturer, they will direct you accordingly – as the base warranty is different for each appliance.

 Below is a list of other Ontario support programs to help ease your electricity burden:

1. Ontario Electricity Support Program (OESP)

2. The Save on Energy Home Assistance Program (HAP)

3. The Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP)
