Business Refrigeration Incentives Program

Get up to $2500 in free installed upgrades for your business. 


Do you own a restaurant, food service, or business that uses commercial refrigeration equipment? Did you know that commercial refrigeration could make up as much as
55-75% of your electricity costs?

The BRI Program could provide up to $2,500 in free, installed energy efficient upgrades for your business’ bottom line. These upgrades, like new walk-in cooler and freezer fans, night curtains, or humidity and evaporator fan controls are designed to reduce energy consumption and energy costs. There is also a free onsite refrigeration assessment to identify upgrade opportunities.

The BRI Program is offered throughout Ontario, brought to you by your local Hydro company and may be delivered by GreenSaver.
