Enbridge Savings By DesignTM


The Savings By Design™ program is design to help builders improve the energy and environmental performance of new construction projects. It is available to Ontario builders in the Enbridge Gas Distribution franchise area. The program has a unique approach offering integrated design support facilitated by Sustainable Buildings Canada.

Savings by Design™ covers all costs of the Integrated Design Process including:

  • Visioning session and report
  • Preliminary energy model and Charrette energy model
  • Integrated Design Charrette logistics, catering, facilitation, and design expert fees
  • Final Charrette report
  • Up to a $50,000 value

For buildings that achieve a 25% energy reduction target versus OBC 2012, Savings by Design provides the following incentives: $0.20/m3 of natural gas savings (up to max $50,000); up to $5,000 toward building commissioning.

OPA saveONenergyOM High Performance New Construction (HPNC)


The HPNC program supports up to 100% of the cost of energy modelling a building (up to $10,000) for the building owner, based on demonstrated energy performance relative to the Ontario Building Code (OBC). Program is intended for commercial, institutional, industrial or multi-residential occupancy.

Approved projects are eligible for incentives in one of two program approaches:

Prescriptive

Incentives are based on standard efficiency measures calculated using provided worksheets for Lighting, Motors, Unitary AC, Variable Frequency Drives, Synchronous Belts, AEM Service Hot Water, Agribusiness, and Alternative measures for Space Cooling and Multi-Residential In-Suite Appliances.

Building owners will receive up to $400 for every kilowatt saved for lighting measures or up to $800 for every kilowatt saved for non-lighting measures or up to $75 per appliance.

Engineered

Incentives based on a series of preset calculation worksheets. Building owners will receive up to $400 for every kilowatt saved or $0.05/kWh of energy savings for lighting measures or up to $800 for every kilowatt saved or $0.10/kWh of energy saved for non-lighting measures.

Custom

Incentives are based on assumed energy and demand savings from modelling software results, used to determine the best energy-efficiency measures to incorporate in a new building or major renovation.

Building owners


  • Up to 25% above Code: $400 for every verified kilowatt saved, or $0.05/kWh of Energy Saved
  • Between 25% to 50% above Code: $600 for every verified kilowatt saved, or $0.075/kWh of Energy Saved
  • Greater than 50% above Code: $800 for every verified kilowatt saved, or $0.10/kWh of Energy Saved
