Energy Performance Program Incentives for Multi-Site Businesses

The Energy Performance Program (EPP) encourages whole building energy performance improvements
through incentives at a four cent per kilowatt-hour ($0.04/kWh) of savings per year for up to 4 years. 
This pay-for-performance model encourages participants who are able to make behavioural and operational
changes alongside capital investment projects to achieve and grow energy savings over multiple years.


  • The program provides multi-site customers with a single program point of contact.

  • Performance payments are determined by comparing metered consumption to consumption predicted by a building-specific baseline energy model.

  • Customers have choice and flexibility in implementing capital and non-capital energy efficiency measures, and are compensated for energy savings at the same rate regardless of which initiatives are pursued. 

  • Measuring savings at the whole-building level reduces cost and administrative efforts.

Eligibility Criteria:

To participate, companies must:

  • enroll two or more buildings located in two or more local hydro company service areas;

  • commit buildings to participate for at least two years and plan to realize at least five per cent energy savings per building;

  • have hourly meter data available for their building;

  • have a minimum annual consumption of 1,500,000 kWh per building (or group of buildings aggregated into a single baseline energy model).

How to Participate:
