Ottawa has launched the first phase of its plan to offer interest-free loans to Canadians planning upgrades that will have a significant impact in reducing their home’s environmental footprint.

The program will provide interest-free loans of up to $40,000 per household to help finance eligible retrofits. The first phase is open to eligible homeowners who are applying or have an open application to the Canada Greener Homes Grant.

The second phase will begin in early September. It will expand the eligibility to homeowners who have already received a grant or requested a post-retrofit EnerGuide evaluation, but still have remaining eligible retrofits they are interested in doing, that have not yet started.

SpaceX clears FAA environmental hurdle, moves closer to routine launches of Starship rocket from Texas
private space company headed by Elon Musk would have to take more than 75 actions to mitigate environmental impacts from the proposed plan to launch the Starship/Super Heavy vehicle from Boca Chica, Texas. Those measures would include actions to address impacts to fish, wildlife and plants in and around the site near the Gulf of Mexico. The SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket sits on launch pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center as it is prepared for life-off (Credit: Joe Raedle/Getty Images) The environmental review is only one step in the FAA's approval process, the agency said. ELON MUSK SAYS HE DOESN'T USE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS; SPACEX PRESIDENT DEFENDS HIM OVER SEXUAL ASSAULT CLAIM"SpaceX also must meet FAA safety, risk, and financial responsibility requirements before a license is issued for any launch activities," it said in a press release. Some of the measures SpaceX would have to take include adjusting lighting at the launch site, removing debris from sensitive habitats, notifying nearby communities in advance about potential engine noise and sonic booms resulting from launches and monitoring by a qualified biologist.SpaceX has previously said it would use the Starship for its most ambitious missions, including a potential trip to Mars. In February, Musk said the rocket could reach orbits for less than $10 million per flight within two or three years, a fraction of the traditional cost to launch rockets into space.CLICK HERE TO READ MORE ON FOX BUSINESSFox News has reached out to the company. Find more updates on this story on FOXBusiness.com.
