Learn How Energy Programs Can Help Modernize Your Home
Let’s take a look at some Ontario government incentives and programs to help businesses do that:
- Audit Funding: An energy audit shows how energy is used in your business and pinpoints what improvements can be made. By replacing outdated energy-hungry equipment and changing operational practices you will save electricity and reduce operating costs. The Audit Funding incentive covers up to 50% of the cost of an energy audit.
- Small Business Lighting: Get $1500 or more when you upgrade your old lighting! The Small Business Lighting program could defray up to 50% of the cost of upgrading your HVAC and other systems, as well (only with a specific contractor- contact S&S Electrical Services to inquire further).
- Retrofit Program: This program offers incentives for the installation of high-efficiency equipment like lighting, motors, heating and modern control systems.
There are also incentives for homeowners in Ontario. For example:
- The IESO offers incentives for residential heating. Receive up to $250 when you install a high-efficiency furnace outfitted with an Electronically Commutated Motor (ECM).
It just makes economic sense to modernize your home or business and make it more energy efficient! The installation of LED lighting, for example, will cut your lighting bill by as much as 75%. That translates into a return on investment of 1 – 3 years! Plus they require less maintenance (LEDs last 4 – 9 times longer than other light sources), produce less heat and are fully dimmable and safer (low voltage). What more could you ask for?
And it’s not just about the monetary gains. Every step you take now to make your home or business more energy efficient reduces your carbon footprint—a gift to the planet and all future generations.
