Ontario to stretch energy efficiency spending

Competitive procurement underpins the Ontario government’s efforts to trim the price-point of energy efficiency spending. A new slate of conservation and demand management (CDM) programs allocates $456 million for commercial, institutional and industrial consumers over a four-year period with $110 million of that earmarked for still unspecified “customer solutions” to be rolled out in 2023 and 2024.
