Key Program Changes


Important Changes in How Conservation Programs are Delivered

The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) has been directed by the provincial government to change the way residential, business and industrial conservation and energy efficiency incentive programs are delivered. As of April 1, 2019, Burlington Hydro, along with all Ontario electricity utilities, will no longer deliver on the majority of Save on Energy programs. Instead delivery of a selection of eligible programs will be managed centrally under the IESO. Poolsaver will still be offered directly by Burlington Hydro through participating pool and spa dealers. Learn more about the changes from the Save on Energy website.
