Process and Systems Upgrades program update

The Process and Systems Upgrades program will be delivered directly by the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) rather than through your local hydro company beginning April 1, 2019. Further updates to the program will be announced in the coming weeks.

If you have an existing program application contact your local hydro company. If you have questions, please contact

Uncover potentially hidden savings through the Opportunity Accelerator program.

The Opportunity Accelerator program can help you find potential energy efficiency opportunities for your business that you may not uncover otherwise.

Your local hydro company can offer you this no-cost, no-obligation service. If you are approved, a qualified technical advisor will arrange a visit to your facility, work with you to spot the opportunities and provide you with a customized report listing your cost-effective, energy-saving projects.

There are four streams of participation in the program: facility site visit, system focused, capital project accelerator and low/no-cost. If you’re not sure which stream is best for your business, we can help you make the right decision.

Not sure where to start?

An on-site energy savings audit can help identify and prioritize potential projects.

Want to focus on something specific?

We can do a deeper dive to analyze a specific system and its related processes and equipment, such as pumps or HVAC.

Already have a project in mind?

We can help you define the scope of a specific capital project, such as lighting or equipment upgrades, to help you build your business case.

Limited capital to invest?

We’ll help you find low-cost operational changes that are easy to implement, such as smart scheduling or employee engagement strategies.


Who is eligible to receive incentives?

To be eligible for the Opportunity Accelerator program, your facility must:

  • Have an average annual consumption of 3 GWh/year or an average on-bill monthly peak demand greater than 500 kW.

Please note that space is limited and the program may not be available for your facility.
