Save Energy

The Government of Ontario has made changes to the Conservation and Demand Management Programs in Ontario. Effective April 1, 2019, the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) will be responsible for centrally delivering and administering conservation programming in the Province until December 31, 2020.

Entegrus has taken pride in delivering conservation programs to its customers since 2007, and has achieved impressive results in helping customers manage their energy use.

For further information on program changes, please visit:

The following Business and Industrial conservation programs will remain available and are now delivered through the IESO:

  • Retrofit
  • Small Business Lighting
  • Energy Manager Program
  • Process and System Upgrades (to be combined with the Industrial Accelerator Program)
  • Energy Performance Program

The following Business and Industrial conservation programs are no longer available, new applications will not be accepted:

  • Business Refrigeration Incentive
  • Audit Funding Program
  • High Performance New Construction
  • Existing Building Commissioning
  • Monitoring and Targeting

What to do if you already have a project underway:

Entegrus will continue to support customers who have existing applications that have already received pre-approval from Entegrus under the Retrofit, PSU, or Audit Funding programs. These projects must be completed by December 31, 2020.

 *Due to Covid-19, the Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines has directed the IESO to extend the Conservation First Framework's wind down period by 6-months to June 30, 2021.  Therefore if any customer has a project that was pre-approved through Entegrus as of March 31st, 2019 or before all projects must be declared in service by June 30, 2021. 

New Retrofit Application Portal:

On April 8, 2019, the Save On Energy Retrofit Program will be migrating to a new application portal.
