Energy Conservation Announcement.
The Minister of Energy, Northern Development and Mines has directed the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) to discontinue the current 2015-2020 Conservation First Framework and implement a new interim framework, in support of the government’s goal to reduce electricity costs for customers.
The change means that the IESO will centrally deliver energy-efficiency programs on a province-wide basis with a focus on business and industrial programs beginning April 1, 2019 until December 31, 2020. Ontario businesses will continue to have access to incentives for retrofits and other energy-efficiency projects, and the Home Assistance program for low-income customers and conservation programming for Indigenous communities will continue.
Please visit the IESO website for more information on the new 2019-2020 interim framework. Program-specific information can be found on the Save on Energy website here.
