Strategic Energy Management (SEM) Program

By mmuise

The Save on Energy – Strategic Energy Management (SEM) Program (the “SEM Program”) provides commercial, institutional and industrial customers with assistance in implementing energy management practices at their respective Facility(ies) and with adopting continuous energy improvement systems.

Comments on Funding:

1. Energy Saving Incentives - Participants will receive incentives of $0.02/kWh of electricity savings for implementing eligible measures. These incentives are available for savings from projects that do not receive incentives from another Save on Energy or Ontario ratepayer-funded program.
2. Program milestone incentives - Additional incentives for energy management tools such as meters and testing kits up to a value of $5,000, are available to participants who reach key program milestones.
Note: These incentive schemes are two of the three components of the program, complemented by the Cohort Learning component (support and training opportunities).
