On July 11th, Hydro One Brampton re-launched the Ontario Power Authority’s Small Business Lighting program at the Knights Table on 287 Glidden Road. The Knights Table is a Brampton-based not-for-profit organization that provides hot meals and a food bank to those that deal with the daily issue of hunger, poverty and homelessness. Hydro One Brampton has been a long-time supporter of the Knights Table from fundraising through their Annual Charity Golf Tournament to employee donations and volunteering.
Earlier this year, the Knights Table received a new and more efficient lighting system that significantly reduced their monthly energy costs. The FREE incentive of $1,500 also helped minimize the cost of the project. "We are glad to be able to offer this program to our small business customers. The Small Business Lighting program is advantageous to our customers, not only because of the initial upfront financial incentive, but also the continuous savings they will receive," confirms Remy Fernandes, President & CEO, Hydro One Brampton.
Approximately 400 lighting installations have been completed by Hydro One Brampton since December 2012. These installations were implemented by program delivery agents who are currently visiting all small businesses door-to-door, on behalf of Hydro One Brampton, to introduce the program and to help customers identify specific opportunities for energy savings.
