Pilot Programs

Pilot Program


In addition to our existing suite of energy efficiency programs, Waterloo North Hydro also designs, develops and implements new and innovative pilot programs. By piloting new technologies and program models, we are better equipped to deliver energy efficiency to our customers.

Made possible by funding through the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), we currently have two pilot programs available to our commercial customers:

1. Small & Medium Business Energy Management System Innovation Pilot

  • Better known as the Smart Thermostat Pilot, this program was designed to help small businesses manage heating and cooling loads using a smart thermostat

2. Advanced Power Strip Pilot

  • This pilot program targets plug loads at computer work stations in office environments using an advanced power strip.
