Mississauga businesses incented to conserve

    Enersource among first utilities in Ontario to launch Electricity
    Retrofit Incentive Program

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, Oct. 1 /CNW/ - With managing energy costs on the mind
while reducing the environmental footprint, over 100 Mississauga and Brampton
business customers attended the September launch of the Electricity Retrofit
Incentive Program (ERIP) hosted by Enersource Hydro Mississauga and Hydro One
    Designed to encourage local businesses with cash incentives for
retrofitting high energy consuming items such as lighting and air conditioning
units, ERIP allows business customers to contribute to the reduction of
electricity demand in the Province while enjoying the electricity cost savings
afforded by making energy efficient improvements.
    Craig Fleming, Acting President and CEO of Enersource Corporation, notes:
"Our business customers are always looking for ways to better manage their
electricity consumption while becoming more environmentally focused. ERIP
provides them with a financial incentive for energy efficiency investments
which deliver long term savings. In 2006, as part of the pilot program, one of
Enersource's largest customers, Brookfield LePage, in partnership with Johnson
Control, implemented a lighting retrofit at their postal facility in
Mississauga with an incentive of $44,391 and saved an estimated 700 kW, or
approximately 50 per cent.
    All Enersource Hydro Mississauga business customers are eligible for the
ERIP for projects including lighting retrofits, heating, ventilation, air
conditioning (HVAC), electric motors and transformer upgrades. In addition to
a financial incentive for prescriptive, pre-defined retrofit measures, custom
projects for highly specialized initiatives can be evaluated for incentive
