What we do

The Know Your Power initiative is a one-stop-shop for businesses to learn about energy saving programs and energy efficiency opportunities. We want to help you find energy saving programs that suit your business needs, to improve energy efficiency and save money.

This initiative is a collaboration between the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and the Ontario Ministry of Energy.

Monthly Feature: Lighting Efficiency at Shepherds of Good Hope

Most of the lighting in these facilities operates 24/7 and a large portion of the operations and maintenance budget for each building goes towards paying the energy costs. As lighting is a major consumer of energy in the buildings, a lighting retrofit was a simple and cost-effective solution in reducing costs on an already tight budget. The existing lighting was outdated and resulted in an annual operational cost of approximately $62,000 annually.
