The Government of Ontario has made changes to the conservation programs in Ontario and directed the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) to centrally deliver energy-efficiency programs until December 31, 2020. Ontario businesses will continue to have access to incentives for retrofits and other energy-efficiency projects to help lower their energy costs.
Have a project underway?
If you already have pre-approval for Save on Energy applications, you still have until December 31, 2020 to complete your project through Toronto Hydro*.
*Please note: If you have pre-approval for Audit Funding, you will have until December 31, 2019 to complete your project.
Planning on submitting an application for a new Retrofit project?
Any Retrofit applications submitted to Toronto Hydro before April 1, 2019 and pre-approved by May 1, 2019 will continue to be managed by Toronto Hydro. Any applications that do not receive pre-approval by May 1, 2019 will be reassigned to the IESO. The IESO will manage any new Retrofit applications starting April 1, 2019.
New applications can no longer be accepted for any of the following conservation programs:
- Audit Funding Program
- Residential New Construction
- High Performance New Construction
- Existing Building Commissioning
- Monitoring and Targeting
- Business Refrigeration Incentive
- Smart RT for Small and Mid-Size Business (RTU Saver)
