Save on Energy Business Program Updates

The Save on Energy suite of programs is changing to provide more cost-effective and streamlined energy-efficiency options to help businesses improve their bottom line. All continuing Save on Energy business programs will be delivered directly by the IESO rather than through your local hydro company.

Here's what you need to know:


The IESO will directly handle all Retrofit applications and customer service moving forward.

Customers with existing Retrofit projects that are already approved and underway can continue to look to their local hydro company for information and support until the project is completed. If you have an application that hasn’t received local hydro company approval before May 1, 2019, you will be contacted to confirm that you would like to transfer the application to the IESO for follow up.

For more information, please contact or call the Save on Energy call centre at 1-877-797-9473.

Applying for Retrofit program incentives?

The new Retrofit application portal is now available. Learn how to sign up or login to the portal, as well as access training information and additional resources.

Process and Systems Upgrades

Check with your local hydro company for the status of your application for this program. The IESO is now delivering this program directly. More information will be available soon.

Other Save on Energy programs

Save on Energy will continue to feature the Energy Manager and Energy Performance Programs.


Discontinued programs:

Specialized programs such as Audit Funding, Residential New Construction, High Performance New Construction, Existing Building Commissioning and Monitoring and Targeting are now closed. Applications that are not approved and contracted by your local hydro company before that time will no longer be eligible for funding.

Customers with approved projects that are already underway can continue to look to their local hydro company for information and support until the project is completed. Visit the archive page for documents related to discontinued programs.

A list of the affected local programs are included in the FAQs.
