Title Sector Agency Energy

Implementation incentive for energy efficiency measures

This program offers a grant to encourage companies to implement energy efficiency measures to optimize the use of natural gas, reduce energy consumption and thereby cut energy costs (examples of measures that may be eligible for this program include addition of controls on ventilation or heating systems or on a process; heat recovery on a ventilation system, on combustion products from a furnace or boiler, or from drain water; optimization of a combustion system; insulation on the pipes of a hot water or steam network). The measures implemented must have been identified by a member in good standing of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec.

Implementation incentive for energy efficiency measures for major industries

This program offers a grant to encourage “major industry” Gaz Métro customers to implement energy efficiency measures to optimize the use of natural gas, reduce energy consumption and thereby cut energy costs (examples of measures that may be eligible for this program include addition of controls on ventilation or heating systems or on a process; heat recovery on a ventilation system, on combustion products from a furnace or boiler, or from drain water; optimization of a combustion system; insulation on the pipes of a hot water or steam network). The measures implemented must have been identified by a member in good standing of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec.

Infrared

This program offers a grant to encourage the acquisition and installation of an infrared heating system for heating purposes. Infrared technology operates on the principle of radiant heat, which heats objects and people rather than the ambient air. Infrared heating is ideal for buildings with large volumes of air and which are susceptible to significant air infiltration. The program is intended for both existing and new Gaz Métro customers.

Low income household supplement (multi-tenant building component)

This program offers supplementary financial assistance to owners of multi-tenant buildings with four or more units, one or more of which are occupied by low-income households, and who are participating in an energy efficiency program. The supplement takes into account the percentage of low-income households renting a unit in the building where the energy efficiency work is being carried out, and is shared between the building owner and the low-income households. The social and community sector, such as housing co-operatives and non-profit organizations that help low-income customers, is also eligible.
Social community, Commercial, Residential Gaz Métro Natural Gas

Low income household supplement (residential component)

This program offers supplementary financial assistance to low-income households who are owners of a single-family home, duplex or triplex and who are participating in an energy efficiency program. The additional assistance doubles the amount offered by the program in which they are participating, excluding programs for the installation of a smart or programmable thermostat, for which the supplementary financial assistance is $220. This program also offers supplementary financial assistance to owners of multi-tenant buildings of three or fewer units, with one or more units occupied by low-income households. The supplement takes into account the percentage of low-income households renting a unit in the building where the energy efficiency work is being carried out, and is shared between the building owner and the low-income households.

Mid-efficiency boiler

This program offers a grant to encourage the acquisition and installation of a mid-efficiency boiler designed to allow for optimal heat exchange between combustion gases and the water or steam to be heated. It includes units with a capacity of at least 300,000 BTU/h, with an efficiency rating between 85% and 89% (excluding condensing units), which are used to heat premises or processes. The program is intended for existing buildings and new constructions, and may be of interest to both current and new customers.

New efficient construction

This program offers a grant to encourage the construction of an energy-efficient building that consumes less energy than standard reference buildings. This will result in reduced operating costs and increased resale value. The proposed projects can involve building a new construction, expanding an existing building or carrying out a major renovation project. The program also covers part of the cost of the energy simulation for the new building. It is intended for current Gaz Métro customers or soon to be customers.

Programmable electronic thermostat

This program offers financial assistance to promote the purchase and installation of programmable electronic thermostats by existing and new Gaz Métro customers. Using an integrated timer, this type of thermostat adjusts the ambient temperature based on a pre-established daily or weekly schedule.

Recommissioning

This program, also called RCx, offers a grant for the recommissioning of building mechanical systems. This recommissioning determines and addresses the causes of a building’s operating problems, whether with regard to control sequences, adjusting air intake rates, adapting the various systems’ hours of operation and adjusting the set points. This program is offered through a partnership between Gaz Métro and Transition énergétique Québec.

Smart thermostat

This program offers financial assistance to promote the purchase and installation of smart thermostats. Designed to optimize comfort and ensure peace of mind, this type of thermostat automatically adapts to the occupants’ lifestyle, making it easier to control the home’s energy consumption. Connected to a Wi-Fi network, this new thermostat enables remote control of the heating and air conditioning system via the Internet or a mobile app. The program is intended for Gaz Métro residential customers.
