Upgrades and capital projects can be expensive, so make sure you’re getting the best option to modernize your facility, increase you productivity, and lower your electric usage. We can help you access Provincial incentives and help lower the costs of your projects.

GET CONFIRMATION Will Product X actually save 40% on your electric bill? Niagara-on-the-Lake Hydro’s conservation department can help you see how your upgrades will affect your energy efficiency. If we can’t, we’ll help connect you to the people who can.

GET THE BIG PICTURE - It’s not always about the upfront costs. Look at the overall costs of maintenance, productivity and power consumption when purchasing. We can help you go over your options and their energy implications.

GET INCENTIVES - If your upgrade will lower your bill, we can probably get you an incentive. We will ensure you get the maximum incentives available and can often complete your application for you so you can focus on growing your business.

GET IT FREE - Provincial funding is available but we can only help prior to purchase. Contact us early to ensure you’re eligible for incentives and to get confirmation of your project’s efficiency.



Investing in energy efficient lighting can improve in-store customer experiences, provide more attractive product displays, help employees more easily focus on tasks, and help you manage your operating costs. The new Small Business Lighting program offers businesses in Ontario a simple solution for energy efficient lighting.  

Eligible businesses will receive:

  • - A free onsite lighting assessment of their facility;
  • - Up to $2,000 in incentives towards eligible energy efficient lighting upgrades (fees may apply depending on what updates are agreed upon); and
  • - A turn-key lighting installation which eliminates the need to search for a qualified contractor, obtain quotes, submit incentive applications, project manage the retrofit and clean-up.

Who is eligible to participate?

  • - Businesses with an average annual demand of less than 100kW
  • - Previous participants of the Power Saving Blitz 2008-2010 or Direct Install Lighting (also known as Small Business Lighting 2011-2015) programs are eligible to participate in the new Small Business Lighting program
NOTE - General Service Customers will be contacted but are not obligated to participate.

“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 and the money we saved we reinvest back into our business.”

– Anne Campagna, Co-Owner, Cupcakes of Westdale

"The whole store just had a much brighter atmosphere, so we were keen to replicate this across all our other stores after we were able to see the difference at Hiker’s Haven. The projected cost savings were as promising as those at Hiker’s Haven, so it was a no-brainer to install LEDs at all our other locations as well."

- Lisa Raftis, Store Manager, Hiker's Haven
