HELPING MANITOBANS SAVE WITH OUR BUSINESS LIGHTING PROGRAM
Our Business Lighting Program offers incentives to businesses that make energy-efficient upgrades to the lighting in their buildings.
Pockit Self Storage South Winnipeg recently upgraded all their outdoor lighting—and we gave them an incentive for doing it!
Pockit Self Storage South Winnipeg is a facility offering storage solutions for all your storage needs. They offer a variety of unit sizes, with climate-controlled options and 24/7 access.
With the help of our incentives, they were able to upgrade the 47 metal-halide wall fixtures on the outside of their facility to LEDs.
LED fixtures use much less energy than metal-halides, but also provide a ton of other benefits. The new fixtures will last much longer, provide a better quality of light, and radiate very little heat.
“We have better quality light now that it isn’t the orange glow. There’s no weird buzzing, no heat coming from them—it really is great.”James Franz
Regional Manager, Pockit Self Storage
With these new exterior fixtures, Pockit Self Storage South Winnipeg will realize 34,000 kWh in electricity savings each year! That translates to savings of over $1,700 annually on their energy bills.
We provided an incentive of $4,455 plus a bonus customer incentive of over $1,100 for a total incentive of nearly $5,600. We’re offering this additional 25% customer bonus on all lighting projects for applications completed before March 31, 2023.
“We wouldn’t have tackled this at this time without the Efficiency Manitoba incentive; it just wasn’t on our radar,” states Franz.
Applying for incentives is easy with our new online application system, myEM. Building owners can apply on their own, or their lighting suppliers or contractors can apply on their behalf.
Our team can help you with each step of your application from submission to payment.
“I have dealt with multiple members of Efficiency Manitoba and always felt as though we were working together as a team through the process,” says Franz.
