On August 25, the Town of Fort Erie's Manager of Facilities, Sean Hutton, was presented with a $900 Electricity Retrofit Incentive Program (ERIP) cheque by Canadian Niagara Power. This was in recognition of the electricity savings achieved through retrofitting the change-rooms at the Crystal Ridge Arena with occupancy sensors.
The Electricity Retrofit Incentive Program, offered by Canadian Niagara Power and the Ontario Power Authority, provides incentives for commercial, industrial, agricultural and institutional customers who complete electrical retrofits that result in demand savings and/or annual energy savings. By installing energy-efficient lighting controls in the facility, the program will help reduce their environmental footprint, provide better illumination levels and reduced energy consumption.
The conservation programs for businesses offered by Canadian Niagara Power assist customers undergoing retrofits they might otherwise not be able to complete. Money saved on energy is money that can be directed instead to other priorities. We congratulate Mr. Hutton and the Town of Fort Erie on taking a pro-active, leadership role in energy conservation in our community.
