Eligibility

  • All types of businesses with 50 or fewer employees on site at any point in time can participate.
  • Previous participants of the Small Business Lighting Program from 2016 – 2019 are not eligible to participate again.

The Small Business Lighting Eligible Measures List has been updated, effective July 6, 2020, to reflect changes to Electrical Safety Authority fees which took effect on that date.

Here's how it works

  1. Contact us. We’ll connect you with a program representative to help determine eligibility, provide relevant documents, and arrange an appointment to get started on a lighting upgrade.

  2. Review your options. The onsite assessment will identify the opportunities for lighting upgrades. If you decide to proceed, you will be required to sign a work order and participant agreement. Your program provider will complete all necessary paperwork and arrange for the installation.

  3. Work begins. A licensed contractor will install the new lighting. Incentives of up to $2,000 may be provided for new energy-efficient lighting (including the cost of materials and labour).*

*Note: Some projects will be fully covered by the program while others may only be partially funded. There may be an opportunity for additional incentives for projects that exceed $2,000.

Why should you participate?

The Small Business Lighting program is a simple and easy solution to energy-efficiency lighting. The program will provide a turn-key installation, which eliminates the need to search for a qualified contractor, obtain quotes, submit incentive applications, project manage the retrofit and clean-up.

"As soon as the lights were installed we noticed how bright and cheerful this place looked and our cupcakes looked amazing. The new lighting is saving us $400 a year in electricity costs, and we reinvested the money we saved back into our business."
