Efficiency Incentive Applications

As the Ontario government focuses on increasing attention on reducing building energy use, new efficiency incentives have emerged. Developers of new buildings can reap significant financial rewards through programmes such as IESO’s Save On Energy for High-Performance New Construction (electricity) and Enbridge’s Savings by Design (natural gas).

Building Knowledge’s decades of expertise with computer energy modeling for a wide range of buildings ensures clients can effectively prove their designs’ energy savings for a maximum incentive reward.
