As conscientious Canadians, we all want to do our part to decrease our carbon footprint. Unfortunately, cutting-back on energy usage can seem like a daunting challenge and many are confused about where to start and what changes can really make an impact.

That’s where Ontario’s Save on Energy progam comes in. The program, powered by the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), a government agency, strives to make it easier for Ontarians to adopt an energy-efficient lifestyle via numerous incentives and rebate programs, which can be found on their informative website Save on Energy.

Terry Young, Vice President of Policy, Engagement and Innovation at the IESO, emphasizes that reducing energy use doesn’t need to be overwhelming or require major lifestyle changes. “Saving energy doesn’t have to start with big investments at home or at your business— small changes can have a big impact.”

There’s no better time to save energy than during Save on Energy Deal Days. From April 6 to May 6, homeowners can load up on savings on LEDs, power bars, dimmer switches, ceiling fans and more at participating retailers across the province. For more information, visit
