SUPPORT FOR INITIATIVES

NEW ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

The Support for Initiatives program is divided into two components to provide the opportunity to apply energy-saving measures that are every bit as varied as they are effective.

The Energy Optimization component supports measures involving the building envelope and mechanical systems (heating, air conditioning and ventilation). For the Efficient Envelope, Solar Wall, and Low-flow fixtures, Gazifère provides $0.50 per cubic metre of natural gas saved. For the other measures under this component, Gazifère provides $0.30 per cubic metre of natural gas saved. The financial support provided by Gazifère cannot exceed 40% of the cost of the measure or $20,000*.

The Implementation Assistance component supports the application of measures involving the use of natural gas in production processes and high-efficiency equipment not covered by existing programs (e.g. stoves and dryers). Under this component, Gazifère provides $0.30 per cubic metre of natural gas saved up to 40% of the cost of the measures or $10,000*.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO?

STEP 1: ARRANGE FOR A FEASIBILITY STUDY OR AN ENERGY SIMULATION REPORT

In the case of an existing building, the measures implemented must be recommended in a feasibility study prepared by an engineer who is a member of a professional association. In the case of a new building, the measures must be recommended in connection with an energy simulation.

Consult the Feasibility Study program to find out more about the financial assistance provided by Gazifère for this first step.

 

STEP 2: CONSULT THE PARTICIPANT’S GUIDE ON SUPPORT FOR INITIATIVES (New Building or Existing Building)

In order to receive financial assistance from Gazifère, certain eligibility criteria must be met. Be sure to review them carefully before preparing a pre-admission application.

STEP 3: SEND IN YOUR PRE-ADMISSION APPLICATION AND A SUMMARY OF THE MEASURES TO BE IMPLEMENTED

In order to qualify for financial assistance from Gazifère, you must obtain approval of your pre-admission prior to implementing the energy efficiency measures in question. To do that, you must send us your pre-admission form as well as a summary of the measures to be implemented.

STEP 4: OBTAIN GAZIFÈRE’S APPROVAL

Gazifère will confirm receipt of the pre-admission form within 10 working days. Gazifère processes pre-admissions on a first come, first served basis, and depending on the availability of funds.

STEP 5: ARRANGE FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY MEASURES

STEP 6: SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION

You must include the following three documents:

  • The copy of the feasibility study or simulation report
  • The simulation report wich must be submitted on a CD.
  • A summary of the implemented measures
  • The invoice for any newly acquired appliances

Invoices must be dated in the current year. The model number of the installed appliance and the date of installation must be indicated. The date of installation must be later than your pre-admission application.

Appliances for which Gazifère already provides financial assistance under another program are not eligible under this program.

C/O Energy Efficiency

STEP 7: OBTAIN GAZIFÈRE’S FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Gazifère will submit the information received to an external consultant for review before providing any financial assistance. The costs associated with that review will be covered by Gazifère, and a copy of the ensuing report will be forwarded to the applicant. If there is any missing or unsatisfactory information, we will contact the company representative in charge of the file for clarifications.

The applicant will be notified in writing whether the application for financial assistance has been accepted or denied, and of the amount. A cheque will be mailed to the address indicated on the application for financial assistance.

* Please note that the program terms and conditions, and the amounts of financial assistance may be changed without notice.
