  • The 2011-2014 CDM programs deployed in Ontario under the GEA mandate are classified into 3 categories or tiers to reflect scope and applicability of specific energy efficiency measures.

    Tier 1 programs are automatically built into the 2011 CDM programs

    Tier 2 and Tier 3 can be defined over time, subject to OEB approval, though it is in our interest to establish them as quickly as possibble to begin contributing towards our target.
  • CDM targets are exclusively the responsibility of the LDCs. Where does that leave BOMA and the City?

    Our intent is to work with BOMA and the City of Toronto as our Channel Partners in delivering CDM programs on Toronto Hydro’s behalf within their particular sectors:
    City = M.A.S.H
    BOMA = Commercial and Large Retail

    We are currently working on an agreement to formalize the arrangement.

    This approach makes sense: recognizes and leverages the expertise and strengths of stakeholders within each of their sectors.
  • can’t say much more because they have not been formally submitted or approved yet.

    In fact, if you have good ideas, let me know.
  • Alternative Applications:
    Thermostatic Setback Control
    Web-based Thermostats
    Demand Control Ventilation
    Disabling Perimeter Heating
    Efficient Signage
    Efficient Accent Lighting
