Existing Building Commissioning



Call us today.


Fast payback, ongoing savings 

Chilled water systems become less efficient as they age. Take advantage of EXISTING BUILDING COMMISSIONING incentives to evaluate and improve the performance of your system.

These improvements will yield a quick payback, reduced maintenance and replacement costs and electricity savings that will pay off for years to come.



Count on our Energy Experts to help you reduce wasted electricity


Get incentives for each phase


Phase 1

SCOPING: Up to $2,500 to hire an industry expert

We’ll help you fund hiring a qualified Commissioning Agent to evaluate your chilled water system’s performance and detail it in a Scoping Study Commissioning Report.
Expert eligibility criteria

Phase 2

INVESTIGATION: Up to $30,000 to analyze your system

During this phase, metering equipment is installed to log data from your chilled water system. By analyzing the data, your Commissioning Agent can make recommendations for appropriate energy-efficiency measures – and calculate their payback periods.

Phase 3
IMPLEMENTATION: Up to $5,000 for energy-efficient upgrades

Get up to an additional $5,000 to install any recommended upgrades with a payback of less than two years. If you decide to implement major measures (with a payback period of more than two years), get up to 50% of your total project costs.

Phase 4
HAND-OFF: Up to $2,500 for final reporting

Following implementation, the Commissioning Agency submits a Completion Phase report, outlining all training and documentation provided to the operators and an analysis of your chilled water system’s yearly energy savings.

Commercial, institutional and multi-residential buildings can apply

To qualify, your business must:

  • Own or lease a chilled water system (if leased, you will need the owner’s permission)
  • Have an annual demand of more than 50 kW 

Your chilled water system must:

  • Be more than three years old
  • Cool an area greater than 50,000 sq. ft.
