Energy managers have the strategic and technical expertise to recommend the energy-saving equipment and technologies that are right for your business. They also have the skills to implement an energy management strategy for your business – working directly with your operations team, vendors and service providers, and managing financial incentives that support project success and benefit your company’s bottom line.
Energy managers mean business. They're trained to find energy savings, identify smart energy investments, secure financial incentives and unlock competitive advantage.

I’ve been an energy manager with Atlantic Packaging since 2012. Since I joined the company, we’ve reduced our electricity costs by ten per cent and lowered the Global Adjustment charge by almost 50 per cent. My employment contract requires me to reduce consumption by two per cent annually at each of our facilities, and that means I’m accountable every day for delivering results based on our company’s energy strategy.

The Multi-Site Customer (MSC) Energy Manager program helps customers with facilities across multiple hydro company service areas to access energy manager funding through a single agreement with the IESO.

If approved, the IESO will provide an upfront payment of $40,000 annually upon the hiring of an energy manager, with an annual total funding cap of $150,000.
