Project description

Québec-based electrical contractors (i.e., master electricians) selling and installing LED lighting products featured on the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) list or product distributors selling these products

The project involves installing Premium LED light fixtures with occupancy sensors in two schools and with adaptive controls in a superstore, as well as a high-bay version in a supermarket.

Areas of activity

Multiple areas of activity are targeted:

  • Educational institutions (such as public or private high schools, colleges or universities)
  • Retail superstores (such as Winners, Rona, Costco or Home Depot)
  • Supermarkets (such as Metro, IGA or Loblaw)

Benefits of being a project aggregator

By becoming a project aggregator, electrical contractors and product distributors can improve their competitiveness.

In this example, the aggregator’s customers could have applied directly to Hydro-Québec for financial assistance, but preferred to call on an expert, which greatly streamlined their project management process.

financial assistance $50,100
