Business Refrigeration Incentive


Business Refrigeration Incentive Program

Get a no-cost refrigeration energy audit and up to $2,500 in refrigeration upgrades.

Refrigeration can represent up to 72% of electricity costs for small to medium sized businesses such as: 

  • Grocery/convenience/retail stores 
  • Restaurants 
  • Food/beverage producers
  • Recreation facilities 
  • Florists 
  • Banquet halls 
  • Nursing homes 
  • And more... 

The Business Refrigeration Incentive (BRI) program is a fast and easy way to upgrade your system, save an average of $100/month on energy costs and reduce refrigeration energy use by 45-60%.

You may qualify if your business:

  • has a Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro business account 
  • uses commercial-grade refrigeration to cool products
  • has an average peak electricity demand of less than 250 kW annually
  • owns or leases the facility (if you lease the space, you must have written permission from the owner)
  • hasn't participated in a previous business refrigeration program
