The IESO provides a province-wide electricity conservation program for multi-unit residential and commercial buildings with financial incentives for electricity efficiency retrofits, energy audits, and tenant education programs. The program is delivered by the local hydro companies and pre-approval is required.
The program provides incentives for Prescriptive or Custom energy efficiency measures. The Custom measure incentive2. s are:
- $400/kW or $0.05/kWh for lighting measures (whichever is higher) to a maximum of 50% of the project costs.
- $800/kW or $0.10/kWh for non-lighting measures (whichever is higher), including lighting controls, to a maximum of 50% of the project costs.
- Social housing providers get double the participant incentive, capped at 50 per cent of the project cost.
Incentive levels are based on a predefined amount. Incentive amounts for lighting and other measures (which include lighting controls) are offered per unit of product.
Recent Updates on Retrofit Program
2021-2024 Conservation and Demand Management (CDM) Framework launching the week of January 4, 2021. The new framework will be centrally delivered by the IESO under the Save on Energy brand and will include incentive programs targeted to those who need them most, including opportunities for commercial, industrial, institutional, on-reserve First Nations, and income-eligible electricity consumers.
Details of programs under the new framework will be available in early November 2020. In the coming weeks, the IESO will be engaging with vendors, customers, and key stakeholders on the new programs to ensure a smooth transition from the current 2019-2020 Interim Framework to the new CDM framework.
Energy-efficiency projects already underway or applications that are pre-approved/contracted by December 31, 2020 will not be affected by the announcement of this new framework and will be expected to complete according to the current program timelines. Projects under the Conservation First Framework (begun before April 2019) must be complete by June 30, 2021, to be eligible for an incentive. Projects under the Interim Framework (since April 2019) must receive pre-approval by December 31, 2020. Applicants are encouraged to submit their applications before the end of October.
Projects that cannot complete by the prescribed timelines under the IF will be offered the opportunity to apply to the new framework, subject to any new rules, eligibility criteria and guidelines.
FCM’s Sustainable Affordable Housing initiative is delivered through Green Municipal Fund and funded by the Government of Canada.
The new $300 million initiative offers support to local affordable housing providers – including municipal, not-for-profit organizations and housing co-ops – to retrofit existing affordable housing units, or construct energy efficient new builds that emit lower GHG emissions.
