The save ON energy retrofit program can help your business uncover opportunities for substantial savings through energy-efficiency upgrades, no matter your size or sector. Metro Lighting will handle the administration of your rebate program. The client will be informed of the total rebate amount prior to the installation process, and will be paid to the client upon project completion.
Metro Lighting works with incentive programs such as the Save-ON-Energy retrofit program, run by the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) and delivers incentives up to 50% of your total project cost.
How Ontario Rebates Work
How does the IESO rebate process for Ontario work?
We use the energy assessment of your building to complete and file the paperwork. Within 2-3 weeks the IESO sends a formal approval. Once the work is completed, we submit the final report and soon after, you receive your rebate cheque.
How are IESO rebates calculated?
Since their intent is to encourage energy conservation, rebates are entirely based on how much energy the efficiency upgrade is going to save.
Though there are standard calculations for most retrofits, whether based on a particular fixture, bulb, location or hours of operation, it often gets a lot more complicated when we introduce controls and change usage patterns.
Our complementary lighting assessment will include rebate estimates for the options and scenarios we recommend.
Is there any eligibility for getting retrofit rebates?
A lighting retrofit needs to result in a minimum demand reduction of 1kW or a reduction of 2,000 kWh in the first year. This is a very low threshold, which means that just about any upgrade will qualify for a rebate.
