What is the Small Business Lighting Program?

Do your store lights flicker? Are your product displays poorly lit? Do you spend too much on replacing burnt out light bulbs? Are you looking for ideas to help manage your operating costs? Investing in energy efficient lighting can improve in-store customer experiences, provide more attractive product displays, help employees more easily focus on tasks, and help you manage your operating costs. The new Small Business Lighting program offers businesses in Ontario a simple solution for energy efficient lighting.

Eligible businesses will receive:

  • A free onsite lighting assessment of their facility;
  • Up to $2,000 in incentives towards eligible energy efficient lighting upgrades*; and
  • A turn-key lighting installation which eliminates the need to search for a qualified contractor, obtain quotes, submit incentive applications, project manage the retrofit and clean-up.

Who is eligible to participate?

  • Businesses with an average annual demand of less than 100kW
  • Previous participants of the Power Saving Blitz 2008-2010 or Direct Install Lighting (also known as Small Business Lighting 2011-2015) programs are eligible to participate in the new Small Business Lighting program.
