A Note to Customers of Rideau St Lawrence regarding Changes to Conservation Programs

Rideau St Lawrence would like to thank all of our customers for the success of our energy-efficiency programs during the Conservation First Frameworks. It is through your participation in the programs and commitment to energy efficiency that, together, we were able to reduce the electricity use in our community.

As of March 21, 2019, there has been a change in the energy-efficiency programs. The Minister of Energy, Northern Development and Mines issued a directive that cancels the Conservation First Framework and moves the administration of some programs to the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) through an Interim Framework.

The chart below indicates the status of each program. Further details on program changes can be found at saveONenergy website

Customers with existing approved projects that are already underway can continue to look to Rideau St Lawrence for information and support until the project is completed. Those looking to start new applications in programs that are continuing can do so directly with the IESO.

The Save on Energy call centre can be reached at 1-877-797-9473.

If we can be of assistance, please contact us so that we can ensure the transition to the Interim Framework is as easy as possible.

Thank you again for your participation in the Conservation First programs. It has been a pleasure to work with our community to achieve these remarkable results.
