Toronto’s Energy Efficiency Office provides incentives available to new and/or retrofit projects through its Better Buildings Partnership, which recently expanded its focus to include the Arts & Culture sector.
These incentives can represent up to 50% of project costs.
The 2011-2014 incentives include:
Audit Funding helps you spot energy-saving opportunities and cover up to 50% of the cost of an energy audit.
Retrofit Program covers 50% of costs of installing energy-efficient measures around lighting and various non-lighting projects
The High Performance New Construction Program provides design assistance in energy-efficiency for new buildings and renovations and supports up to 100% of the cost of modeling a building
The City has four technical associates that can help you apply to these programs. Contact the Energy Efficiency Office (416.542.3388) to discuss, or Jini Stolk ([email protected]) or Anthony Marshall ([email protected]) if you have questions on how to proceed.
