Ontario Energy Savings L.P. and Nationwide Energy Advisors Help Consumers "Go Tankless"

    New promotional initiative makes switching to a high efficiency tankless
    hot water heater more advantageous for consumers.

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 7 /CNW/ - Ontario Energy Savings L.P. (OES), a
leading independent energy retailer, and Nationwide Energy Advisors (NEA), a
licensed provider of energy evaluations for Natural Resources Canada's
ecoENERGY Retrofit for Homes program, today announced the launch of a new
promotional initiative designed to make switching to a high efficiency
tankless hot water heater an even more advantageous option for consumers.
    Through this initiative, consumers who rent or purchase a new Rinnai high
efficiency tankless hot water heater through Newten Home Comfort L.P., an
affiliate of OES, will now receive a discounted initial energy evaluation
through NEA. By undertaking this initial evaluation, consumers will gain
access to the $500 in Government grants made available to those who choose to
make the switch to a new high efficiency tankless hot water heater. What's
more, these evaluations, which are the first step to increasing a home's
overall energy efficiency, can also lead to increased home comfort and resale
value, reduced energy bills, mortgage discounts and a greener environment.
    "We're very pleased to be working with NEA on this initiative," said Ken
Hartwick, President and CEO of OES. "Their experience and expertise in
conducting these energy evaluations combined with their commitment to
excellence in customer service will definitely make it easier for consumers to
take full advantage of the benefits associated with this positive
environmental choice."
    In addition to conducting the audit, NEA also helps customers obtain the
grants by completing the necessary paperwork and by forwarding the
applications to the relevant government body on their behalf. This allows
customers to focus on enjoying the benefits of "going tankless", which include
reduced water heating costs, reduced levels of greenhouse gas emissions and an
endless supply of hot water.
