Energy efficiency program incentives can go a long way in helping municipalities fund important energy efficiency upgrades. However, the time and complexity of managing incentive applications can be a barrier to taking advantage of these opportunities.
For the towns of Hearst and Cochrane, the answer was Ecobility, a full-service energy efficiency solutions provider with a track record of successfully delivering energy efficiency solutions to municipalities, businesses and homeowners.
Both towns now benefit from lower hydro bills thanks to using Ecobility’s turnkey service to secure incentives for its energy efficiency projects.
“We manage the entire application process from start to finish so our clients can focus on other critical business activities” said Angela Matthews, Director of Operations for Ecobility.
As experts in the field, the Ecobility team maximizes available incentives and takes care of the cumbersome application logistics, making the entire process easier for its clients.
“We were able to change all the lighting fixtures in the Hearst Town Hall, Fire Hall, Recreational Centre and Public Works Garage” said Kory Hautcoeur, Chief Building Official and Director of Planning for the Town of Hearst.
The energy efficiency incentives obtained with the assistance of Ecobility, also allowed the Town of Hearst to install intelligent power outlets in 5 town parking lots.
“These innovative improvements have saved the Town of Hearst considerable amounts on electricity bills. It also encourages the population to consider similar improvements to their private properties” added Hautcoeur.
The Town of Cochrane has also benefited thanks to thousands of dollars in incentives to upgrade street lighting and various town buildings including the Tim Hortons Event Centre, a major sports facility in the community.
“We obtained funding for each project and took care of the application process from start to finish” said Matthews.
“Ecobility is experienced in managing projects of all sizes but still provides a personal touch to ensure exceptional customer service” she added.
