Solar air preheating system

This program offers a grant to encourage the purchase and installation of a solar air preheating system for space heating. By preheating the air supply to a ventilation system, significant savings can be achieved on the consumption of natural gas needed to heat the fresh air. Highly efficient, a solar air preheating system produces free and renewable energy and helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Variable speed hood

This program offers a grant to encourage the acquisition and installation of a variable-speed control system for commercial range hoods (restaurants, cafeterias, etc.). By using variable-speed fans, the system evacuates only the air volume required to remove kitchen fumes and grease. This prevents too much hot air from being removed and helps save energy since the amount of fresh air to be heated is also reduced. Energy consumption can be reduced by up to 35%. This program is intended for buildings that are equipped with a supply system of fresh air that is generated by a natural gas roof unit or by a natural gas make-up air unit.
