Small Business Lighting Program

Small changes can make big differences in unexpected ways. Funding is available for upgrades to lighting, controls and more.

See your small business in a new light. Get a free lighting assessment* and up to $2,000** in incentives towards an energy-efficient lighting upgrade. There may be an opportunity for additional incentives for projects that exceed the $2000 incentive in the program.

*Assessments conducted by Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro's strategic lighting partner, Lightworks Inc. 

**Based on type of business and operating hours

Does your business have any of these energy-guzzling lighting products? 

If so, you may be a good candidate for this program.

Participation is easy. We'll take care of everything:

All types of businesses with a commercial account and annual electricity demand of 100kW or less, can participate, including:

  • Retail stores
  • Medical offices
  • Restaurants, bars and cafes
  • Laundromats
  • Beauty salons
  • Automotive shops
  • Farms*

*Farms with a residential account and an OFA number are also eligible to participate

Even if you've previously participated in the Small Business Lighting program, you may still be eligible to upgrade to the latest LED lighting technology.
