Industrial Accelerator Program Design Enhancements

​The Industrial Accelerator Program (IAP) was recently extended to December 31, 2020 to give customers continued opportunity for energy savings as Ontario works towards achieving the province’s long–term energy targets.

In response to feedback from stakeholders, the IESO is making changes to enhance the IAP design elements. These enhancements are being introduced to improve the customer experience in the program and to streamline administration to encourage greater participation from eligible customers.

The goal of this stakeholder engagement initiative is to present the proposed enhancements to stakeholders and seek input to identify any challenges or opportunities for implementation.

The stakeholder engagement initiative is open to all interested stakeholders particularly new and existing industrial, commercial and institutional customers which are directly connected to the IESO-controlled grid.

The Industrial Accelerator program provides financial incentives to eligible companies to encourage investment in major energy-efficiency projects, such as process changes and equipment retrofits.
