Got through the process to the Congratulations page for the second time and no email on either tries. Hmmmm....should I keep registering until I get it :)???

Also, love the disclaimer before you submit the application:
"By submitting an application, you acknowledge and agree that you are not guaranteed to receive a smart thermostat or any other energy efficient devices or products in connection with this Program and that you have no claim to receive any such devices or products."

^ They did say it's toward the first 100,000 applicants, divide that by 3 for the number of repeat submissions...

Got my confirmation email a few minutes ago. Website seemed to crash a few times with nothing but blank pages. I kept refreshing and was able to submit my application.

Then they should shut the form down and let us know that the limit has been reached instead of taking more and more personal info from ineligible owners - a lot of data mining going on here.

Well, I think we made the server overloaded, so they might not even receive the submissions.

Not all submissions (not counting duplicates) will be eligible anyway so it's best to keep the application process open.

Submitted around 2:00 PM. Here's the email I got at 2:05 PM:

Congratulations, you have successfully submitted an application for the GreenON Installations program!

What happens next?
Over the coming weeks, a GreenON Installations program representative will contact you to check the eligibility and compatibility of your home with smart thermostats, and then, if you qualify, schedule a home visit at a time that works best for you.
A home visit will include:
The installation of your chosen smart thermostat and a demonstration of how it works
A home energy review that will show you ways to reduce your carbon footprint and save money. Once your review is complete, you will receive a customized energy report of your home within a few weeks of your home visit.
Soon, you'll be receiving additional information about the program. In the meantime, learn more about what you can expect at your home visit.
Looking for ways to save? Discover other energy saving programs you can take part in.
If you have any questions regarding the GreenON Installations program or general inquiries about the Green Ontario Fund, contact info@GreenON.ca or call 1-888-728-8444.
