FAQs about ICI
The Industrial Conservation Initiative (ICI) is a government program introduced by the IESO to reduce the costs of managing Ontario’s electricity infrastructure. In exchange for reducing electricity usage for 5 hours each year, industrial companies are able to reduce their electricity costs by $500,000 per MW.
The grid is built to meet peak load
Storing electricity is very expensive, so the grid is built to meet the peak load – even if it only lasts for a single hour.
By reducing peak load, we all save
By reducing usage during these peak hours, the entire grid can be built smaller – saving billions of dollars.
The grid needs help to reduce peak load
To save money, the grid needs businesses to help reduce load during these peak hours that occur every year.
Businesses with a peak load over 1MW
The ICI Program is open to any business in Ontario that has an average monthly peak load greater than 1MW.
Industry and greenhouses qualify with 0.5MW
An exception is made for industry and greenhouses, they qualify if their peak load is greater than 500KW.
Pay a portion of the provincial costs
In the ICI Program, you will pay a percent of Ontario’s electricity costs equal to your usage during peak hours.
Earn savings by reducing peak load
By reducing usage during the peak hours, you will earn significant savings by reducing the percent you pay.
There are only 5 peak hours
Savings are based on your usage during 5 peak hours, the rest of the year you can use electricity normally
Savings appear as a reduced GA charge
As payment, your utility will reduce Global Adjustment charges on your monthly electricity bill.
Possible to save up to 70%
If your business can reduce peak usage to 0MW, you can reduce your monthly electricity costs by up to 70%.
Save more as GA charges increase
Since the ICI Program began, Global Adjustment costs have increased leading to increased potential savings.
Usually during summer and winter
All of the peak hours occur during extreme weather events, usually abnormally cold or hot days.
Usually between 3pm and 8pm
Most of the peak hours are caused by homeowners coming home after 3pm and increasing their usage.
Becoming harder to predict
The peak hours have become harder to predict as more companies join the ICI Program each year.
