Leaders in energy management (commercial)

Update: we've met our targets for fiscal 2017

Thanks for helping us reach our targets! Due to the outstanding and ongoing support for conservation and energy management from you and our customers, we've received enough project applications to reach our program targets for our fiscal year, which runs through March, 2017.

In general, projects already in the BC Hydro operational queue that meet program criteria are still eligible. If you don't have a project in the queue, you will have the opportunity to apply again starting in January 2017.

Important updates to our programs

Note that, starting in fiscal 2018, annual customer incentive caps will apply to all new Project Implementation Funding and Business Energy Saving Incentives projects.  

  • Energy Study Funding: Energy study applications will continue to be accepted for Key Account customers with BC Hydro-funded Energy Managers through this fiscal year, ending March 31, 2017. But keep in mind that funding may become fully subscribed.
    Starting in fiscal 2018, Energy Study funding will be available to Key Account customers with a BC Hydro-funded Energy Manager.

  • Project Implementation Funding & Business Energy Saving Incentives for large business customers with a BC Hydro Key Account Manager: Projects already in the BC Hydro operational queue will continue and must still meet program eligibility criteria to receive an incentive. In early January 2017, we'll start accepting new retrofit projects for completion in fiscal 2018.
    Starting in fiscal 2018, Project Implementation Funding, Business Energy Saving Incentives, and Energy Study offers will be available to Key Account customers with BC Hydro-funded Energy Managers.
  • LED Street Lighting: Not surprisingly, our LED Street Lighting offer has been a hit and we've reached our funding target for fiscal 2017. Projects currently in progress and in the BC Hydro operational queue will continue. Municipalities who aren't Key Account customers will still have access to some funding for this fiscal year.
    The LED street lighting market has advanced significantly. Given these advancements and the successful efforts of the LED Street Lights Across BC consortium, the market has evolved considerably and no further incentive funding will be made available.
