Title Sector Agency Energy

Combo system

This program offers financial assistance to encourage the purchase and installation of a combo system, which meets heating and hot water needs with a single appliance. The system is composed of a condensing tankless water heater, combined with a fan coil unit that heats the air. In addition to being very efficient, such a system saves on space. Eligible water heaters must have an energy rating of at least 90% in addition to being ENERGY STAR® qualified. The program is intended for existing buildings as well as new constructions, and may be of interest to both current and new Gaz Métro residential customers.
Residential Gaz Métro Natural Gas

Condensing boilers

This program offers a grant to encourage the purchase and installation of a condensing boiler, which uses part of the latent heat energy from combustion exhaust to heat premises and processes. Eligible boilers must have an efficiency rating of at least 90%. The program is intended for at existing buildings as well as new constructions, and may be of interest to both current and new customers.
Commercial, Institutional, Municipal, Industrial, Agriculture, Agri-food Gaz Métro Natural Gas

Condensing unit heater

This program offers a grant to encourage the acquisition and installation of a condensing unit heater with an efficiency rate of more than 90%. Suspended from the ceiling, the unit quickly heats large areas. Since the surface of a condensing heater unit’s heat exchanger is larger than that of a standard unit heater, a larger portion of the heat in combustion exhaust is recovered by the unit. The program is intended for at existing buildings as well as new constructions, and may be of interest to both current and new customers. It’s perfect for warehouses, loading docks and other large areas that need to be heated quickly.

Condensing water heater

This program offers a grant to encourage the acquisition and installation of a condensing water heater with an efficiency rating of at least 90%. Eligible water heaters are very efficient because they reuse part of the latent heat energy from combustion exhaust. They are able to quickly produce large amounts of hot water. The program is intended for at existing buildings as well as new constructions, and may be of interest to both current and new customers.
Commercial, Institutional, Municipal, Industrial, Agriculture, Agri-food Gaz Métro Gaz naturel

Energy innovation

This program offers a grant to encourage the development of new technologies or the innovative use of existing technologies with promising energy efficiency potential. The program enables project proponents (e.g. professional associations, manufacturers, customers) to reduce the costs of carrying out their experimental or demo project.
Commercial, Institutional, Municipal, Industrial, Agriculture, Agri-food, Technological Innovation, Transport Gaz Métro Natural Gas

ENERGY STAR® condensing boiler

This program offers a grant for the purchase and installation of an ENERGY STAR® compliant condensing boiler with an efficiency rating of at least 90%. With a more efficient exchanger than a standard boiler, its performance is better and saves you money on your heating bill. The program is intended for existing buildings as well as new constructions, and may be of interest to both current and new Gaz Métro residential customers.

ENERGY STAR® tankless water heater

This program offers financial assistance for the purchase and installation of an ENERGY STAR® qualified tankless water heater. The lack of a storage tank reduces the heater’s thermal losses and uses less energy to keep the water at the right temperature. Plus, condensing tankless water heaters recover part of the energy they release. These models can have energy efficiency ratings of up to 98%, compared with standard water heaters, which are rated at 63%. Compact and efficient, this type of heater is the ideal solution for small and mid-sized homes including condos, apartments and row houses. The program is intended for existing buildings as well as new constructions, and may be of interest to both current and new Gaz Métro residential customers.

Energy-efficient renovations

This program offers a grant to carry out renovations to improve the thermal envelope of buildings to make them more energy efficient. The work can involve replacing the windows, insulating the walls, insulating the roof, sealing the building, installing thermal screens for greenhouses, etc. It is applicable to customers who own or rent commercial or multi-unit buildings with four or more units or greenhouses, whose primary heating is natural gas.

Feasibility studies and energy simulations

This program offers a grant to conduct a feasibility study covering energy efficiency measures. Carried out by an engineering consulting firm accredited by Gaz Métro, a study such as this helps identify opportunities to improve the energy consumption of a building or process and suggests means of exploiting those opportunities. When the recommended measures are implemented, it is possible to substantially reduce energy consumption and related costs.

Feasibility studies and energy simulations for major industries

This program offers a grant to “major industry” Gaz Métro customers to conduct a feasibility study covering energy efficiency measures. Carried out by an engineering consulting firm accredited by Gaz Métro, a study such as this helps identify opportunities to improve the energy consumption of a building or process and suggests means of exploiting those opportunities. When the recommended measures are implemented, it is possible to substantially reduce energy consumption and related costs.
