Project Description

Québec-based electrical contractors (i.e., master electricians) selling and installing Premium LED light fixtures—in other words, those featured on the DesignLights Consortium [DLC] Premium list—equipped with occupancy and natural lighting sensors and Québec-based distributors selling lighting products on the same list.

The customer base consists mainly of small local businesses in a given municipality, working in various sectors.

financial assistance $3,945

Benefits of being a project aggregator

Becoming a project aggregator enables electrical contractors and product distributors to offer energy efficiency measures to certain customers, which enhances their competitiveness. Individually, these customers would be too small to qualify for the Efficient Solutions program but, when represented by an electrical contractor or product distributor acting as a project aggregator, they can take advantage of the financial assistance provided by Hydro-Québec under this program.

Areas of activity

Multiple areas of activity are targeted.
