No Catch to Conserve
Pilot Program currently offered to small businesses in Markham will provide up to $1,000 in free energy efficiency upgrades with No Catch to Conserve
If saving money is important to your business, you’ll be pleased to hear about the PowerStream No Catch to Conserve pilot program being offered by the Markham Energy Conservation Office (MECO) in partnership with the Ontario Power Authority and Enbridge Gas Distribution.
The No Catch to Conserve program is a pilot program targeting small business owners (<50kW). Qualifying Markham businesses will receive a comprehensive service that includes:
- identification of energy savings potential
- conservation advice
- up to $1,000 in free energy efficiency products and installations
- recommendations on additional cost-effective upgrade measures (no obligation to purchase additional upgrades)
- management of installation contractors and supervision of retrofit work
Space is limited for this pilot but the more businesses requesting to participate the more likely we can continue this program into the future.

Borrow a Watt Reader
Get the RIGHT readings
Ever wonder how much electricity is being drawn from that old refrigerator, television, or computer?
Now there is a way to find out which appliance in your home is responsible for that inflated hydro bill.
Simply connect each appliance to the Watt Reader monitor and it will determine the number of kilowatt-hours used over a certain number of hours. You can then calculate the cost of operating that appliance by comparing it with your monthly hydro bill.
A one week circulation of the Watt Reader is available from all branches of the Markham Public Libraries. The Watt Reader comes with full instructions.
