New Retrofit measures effective August 12, 2019
New incentives and measures are now available through the Retrofit program, offering you more choice when undertaking your energy-efficiency projects. Click here to learn more.
Ontario’s Greenhouses are a large consumer of electricity across the province, consuming more than 1.4 MWh per year and consumption is expected to grow to 3.9 MWh by 2024.
The recently released Greenhouse Energy Profile Study summarizes how energy is used across the sector and provides insight into how greenhouses can utilize energy efficiency and innovative solutions to help their businesses grow.
The energy it takes to power a greenhouse all adds up. Through incentives for equipment upgrades and replacements like switching out lighting or installing high-efficiency pumps greenhouses can significantly reduce the amount of electricity required to grow their crops.
With opportunities available through the Save on Energy Retrofit program, there is plenty of energy savings potential.

A series of changes to certain measures and incentive levels in the Retrofit program will take effect on August 12, 2019.
New incentives cover products on the market that were identified as a priority by the industry and offer customers more choice to meet their energy-efficiency needs. The additions include more options for LED lighting as well as some prescriptive compressed air measures.
Retrofit changes also include reductions to incentive levels for some existing lighting measures, with the exception of exit signs and lighting controls.
In addition, the IESO has been working to reduce the processing times for Retrofit applications, and the timelines for review have been reduced to two weeks. With these faster turnaround times, customers are able to begin projects sooner to achieve more savings over the long term.
For further details on the program changes and a listing of the new measures and incentives, please visit the Retrofit program update webpage.
Please note that the updated Retrofit worksheets will be available on the website on August 12, 2019.
Starting May 13, 2019 the following changes will take effect.
Changes will only affect new applications submitted on or after May 13.
