Program Changes
We've increased rebates for electric vehicles. Learn more about electric vehicles with the knowledge guide and savings calculator.
Public, Separate, Charter and Francophone school authorities can install solar on existing and new schools.
Now simplified measures can be implemented without an audit or study because we have developed calculators to predict energy savings. This includes:
  • lighting,
  • ice rink flood water de-aerators,
  • pump replacements
  • smart thermostats,
  • rooftop unit replacements,
  • space heating boilers,
  • furnaces, and
  • heaters.
