WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR?
Owners and operators of small businesses

If you run a small business or farm, you could be eligible for a free energy-efficient interior lighting upgrade with a value of up to $1,500. The SMALL BUSINESS LIGHTING program is open to Hydro One customers, including:

  • Retail businesses such as grocery stores, dry cleaners or drug stores
  • Food service businesses such as restaurants, bars or clubs
  • Business services such as lawyers, accounting or insurance firms
  • Farms with lighting in barns and out buildings
To qualify, small businesses and farms must have an overall electricity demand of less than 50 kW

Not sure if your business has an electricity demand of 50 kW? If your Hydro One bill shows usage only measured in kWh, then your annual electricity demand is likely 50 kW or less. If it shows kW or kVA, then your business likely has a demand of more than 50 kW a year.

WHAT ARE THE INCENTIVES?
Get up to $1,500 in energy-efficient lighting. Free.

The SMALL BUSINESS LIGHTING program offers businesses and farms up to $1,500 of energy-efficient lighting, installed, free of charge. The program includes:

  • A free, no-obligation energy assessment
  • Installation of upgrades to lighting (and electric water heater, where applicable) at your convenience
  • All work performed by a licenced electrical contractor

There may be opportunities for further energy-efficiency retrofits above the $1,500 incentive. Speak to our representative for more information.


“My customers and my staff have both noticed a difference in the brightness in the backroom. With the new lighting, it’s 10 times brighter and doesn’t cost so much to run."

Susan Laver, The Flower Shoppe and Music
