The Save on Energy BizEnergySaver program is designed to help industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI), and multi-residential building owners and operators make equipment improvements to reduce their energy consumption. The program helps address local electricity system constraints in the Richview South area in Toronto, by offering commercial buildings upfront incentives to install common area lighting system upgrades, variable frequency drives (VFDs) for pump systems and make-up air units, and garage exhaust fan controls. Save energy and reduce costs when you participate in the BizEnergySaver program.
This program is delivered in collaboration with Toronto Hydro.
The BizEnergySaver program offers participants an easy way to improve their building’s energy efficiency. Here’s how it works:
Participating in the BizEnergySaver program allows you to quickly and easily make equipment improvements to reduce energy consumption, at a reduced cost. There is minimal paperwork, qualified installers ensure high-quality installations and products, and the instant discount is applied directly on your invoice.
You are eligible if you either own the building or have the owner’s permission to have the equipment installed; the building is an industrial, commercial, institutional, or multi-unit residential building; and the first three digits of the building’s postal code must be one of the following:
Eligible measures include:
There is no cost to receive an assessment. After the assessment, you will receive a report of the recommended upgrades, their costs, the instant discount amounts, and the remaining amount payable to have the equipment installed under the program.
You do! Qualified Save on Energy representatives will conduct a free assessment of your business to identify all eligible upgrades for your facility. You will have an opportunity to review these upgrades and to then agree to or decline any of them after the assessment and before the upgrades are installed.
Yes, separate assessments are conducted; however, they may be scheduled at the same time if that is more convenient. Lighting assessments and installations are conducted by qualified Save on Energy representatives who are lighting specialists. Mechanical system assessments and installations are conducted by qualified Save on Energy representatives who are mechanical system specialists.
Your old lighting equipment will be removed and disposed of by the Save on Energy representatives who install the new equipment. Environmentally harmful substances will be recycled or disposed of in a responsible manner, in accordance with legal requirements.
In some cases, your existing equipment may be modified to install the upgrade. For example, Save on Energy contractors will upgrade your parking garage exhaust fan by adding a carbon monoxide sensor and controls.
Only qualified Save on Energy contractors are permitted to install eligible equipment under the BizEnergySaver Program. To save you time and eliminate any potential concerns around the quality of the installations, Save on Energy has prequalified the vendors.
While there shouldn’t be any issues with the newly installed equipment under the program, if you have concerns about the quality of the work done, you can call 1-833-934-0778 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for newly installed lighting equipment, and email@example.com for newly installed mechanical equipment, and you will receive a response promptly.
Save on Energy is committed to ensuring the safety of our customers and communities. Save on Energy representatives will follow the more stringent of either your building’s or Ontario’s health and safety requirements.
