Ideas to grow your business
Deadline for year-end incentives
For customers who have made the smart decision to upgrade to energy-efficient equipment, projects must be submitted by Nov. 15, 2021 to receive incentive payments prior to year end. Completed applications, along with proof of purchase and other required supporting documents, must be submitted by the deadline. For applications submitted Nov. 16 – Dec. 31, we’ll honour 2021 incentive amounts, but customers may not receive payment until 2022.
We understand projects can experience delays and may not be completed by year end. Engage your Enbridge Gas Energy Solutions Advisor as early as possible for what to expect if a project must carry over from one year to the next. We deeply value our relationships with business partners and look forward to continuing to work together to help our customers achieve their energy conservation goals.Contact an Energy Solutions Advisor
4 reasons customers with laundry facilities are switching to ozone systems
Ozone technology is one of the biggest breakthroughs in commercial laundry facilities. It’s cost-effective, easy to install and can dramatically reduce water consumption and natural gas costs.
Ozone systems can be added to commercial-grade washing machines. They draw in ambient air, converting it to oxygen and generating ozone (O3). This “ozonated” cold water increases cleaning efficiency and chemical efficacy—and reduces the need for hot water and detergent.
Speed up customer payback with Enbridge Gas incentives
Ozone systems are eligible for up to $0.04/lb of laundry processed annually, up to a maximum of $15,000 per ozone system or 50 percent of the total project cost. As a business partner, you also qualify for additional incentives of up to $100 per unit.
The benefits of ozone are clear:
It reduces hot water and natural gas costs
Wash large volumes of laundry faster and more efficiently. As ozone laundry doesn’t rely on hot water, it uses far less energy. Unlike traditional chemical cleaning, there are shorter and fewer rinse cycles required and more loads per cycle. Enbridge Gas customers that previously installed ozone technology saved up to $3,000 in annual natural gas and water heating costs.
It’s an environmentally-friendly option
Ozone is a naturally-occurring molecule. It’s made up of three oxygen atoms—the third of which is released to oxidize and naturally break down organic matter. Compared to detergent and chemicals, ozone converts back to oxygen and doesn’t pollute wastewater. For customers with sustainability commitments, ozone laundry hits all the marks.
It can help soften and extend fabric life
Ozone laundry is known for being more gentle on fabrics, leaving no chemical residue behind. That means less wear and tear on everyday linens and fresher, softer fabrics for guests, patients or residents.
It can improve staff comfort
By using less hot water, room temperatures can decrease significantly. Many employees report cooler environments in laundry facilities, particularly during summer months.
Ozone systems are ideal for:
Long-term care homes
Hotels and motels
Commercial laundry services

“We recently worked with a hotel in Peterborough to demonstrate the cost savings and benefits of ozone technology. Today, they have significantly reduced their natural gas costs and their carbon footprint. The incentive covered nearly half of their total project cost.”
