The Energy Performance program rewards customers who are able to make behavioural and operational changes complementary to capital investment projects, which grow their energy savings over many years.
The program is designed with a pay-for-performance model and encourages whole-building energy performance improvements. Incentives are provided at four cents per kilowatt hour ($0.04/kWh) of savings per year, for up to four years.
On top of the performance payments, customers are entitled to receive a Modelling Incentive of $1,500 for each participating facility, up to a maximum of $15,000 for 10 approved facilities.
Participating Energy Performance program facilities have saved an estimated 30,000 MWh, with each facility seeing an average overall electricity saving of 6.5%.
To get started, follow these three steps. Completed documents and any participant questions can be sent to:
Performance payments are paid annually and are limited to maximum savings equal to 20 per cent of the annual electricity consumption for the period used to establish the facility's baseline energy model.
Participants are required to submit a Savings Report for each facility to receive the payments. This report needs to be completed annually, no later than 60 days following the expiration of each pay-for-performance period.
