Custom Incentives

The custom application track is suitable for unique or innovative energy efficiency measures that are not included within the prescriptive or engineered tracks. The custom application track can be driven by the building owner, or by a design decision maker such as an architect, engineer or consultant. Custom projects often require more effort and input from the participant, but can result in focused energy savings.

Custom track incentive amounts are calculated based on the incremental energy performance of the participant’s new building when compared to a base case building that only complies with the minimum requirements of the OBC1. Approved building modelling software must be used to compare the energy usage of the participant’s new building to the base case building in order to estimate the energy savings and potential incentives.  Modelling costs are eligible for an incentive amount of up to $10,000. Modelling can be completed by the participant, design decision maker or can be outsourced to a third party. A design decision maker can be eligible for an incentive as outlined within the Design Decision-Maker Agreement.

Please note that if you already have a structural permit, you are ineligible to apply through the custom track.
