IMPORTANT UPDATE: saveONenergy Programs

Effective March 21, 2019, the Minister of Energy, Northern Department and Mines directed the IESO to discontinue the current 2015-2020 Conservation First Framework (CFF) and implement a new interim framework, in support of the government’s goal to reduce electricity costs for customers. For details on the interim framework, please visit:

Essex Powerlines will continue to manage projects with customers whom already have a binding contract. If you already have a pre-approval for an application under the Retrofit, PSU, HPNC, or Audit Funding Programs, you still have until December 31, 2020 to complete your project through Essex Powerlines.

For inquiries about the status of an existing application, please contact our conservation hotline at 519-946-2001 or by email at
