Marketing

The success of The HEATING & COOLING INCENTIVE will depend largely on the promotional efforts of participating registered contractors.  You are encouraged to reach out to prospective customers through promotional offers andlocal advertising.  The IESO views HVAC contractors as the "front end" of the incentive while abiding by the terms of the HVAC contractor participation agreement.

While contractors are expected to take the lead in promoting the incentive offers, calls will also be generated as a result of the promotional efforts funded by the IESO.  All advertisements will refer consumers to a call centre -- 1-877-797-9473 -- and/or website (saveonenergy.ca),

Further details regarding IESO funded marketing/advertising, etc. for this incentive will be updated during its course.
