financial incentives

All race participants may qualify for financial incentives for equipment retrofits, operational savings, energy audits or other upgrades. Before starting a project, consult with the BOMA Toronto R2R Project Consultant or an Enbridge Energy Specialist for gas-related projects. Incentives may require a baseline measurement to track savings prior to a project starting. 


Take the time to ensure everything is in order for you to make your financial savings even greater through utility incentive programs. 


Incentives can cover up to 50% of your project costs. Take advantage and implement projects while incentives are available. The more projects that your facility implements, the higher your chances of winning a CREST Award.
