Save on Energy – Small Business Program

Eligible small businesses can now receive up to $5,500 to install energy efficient upgrades!

The Save on Energy Small Business program is designed to help small businesses across Ontario install low-energy lighting systems and other energy-efficient equipment.

For no cost to businesses, these upgrades can significantly increase customer and staff experiences, while lowering operational expenses and our province’s carbon footprint.


  • Businesses with an operating capacity of 50 or fewer employees.
  • Participants in the former Save on Energy Small Business Lighting program, Refrigeration Efficiency program, Business Refrigeration Incentive program, and RTUsaver program may be eligible for certain upgrades.
  • Businesses that have previously participated and received funding may qualify to receive additional upgrades at no-cost. Learn more in the eligibility section of the FAQs.
  • Businesses that participated in a Save on Energy program before April 1, 2019 are eligible to reapply.
