How Power Savings Blitz works…
Step 1: We assess your business

An advisor will conduct an assessment of your business and provide a list of recommended energy upgrades to help your business become more energy efficient.

Step 2: We identify your options

After the assessment is completed, you can then decide if you want to have a retrofit completed. Funding of up to $1,000 is provided for the retrofit (including cost of material and labour), with an opportunity for the customer to pay costs over the $1,000 limited. The minimum amount for a free retrofit is $300,

Step 3: We install and upgrade

A licensed electricity contractor will install your free upgrades with your approval at your convenience.
