Provincial Regional and Local Program Rules

A new Interim Framework is taking the place of the Conservation First Framework, which was discontinued effective March 21, 2019 by ministerial directive. The new framework for provincially delivered energy-efficiency programs, also by ministerial directive, began April 1. Program documents related to the new framework are available on the Interim Framework page.


These documents set out the rules for province-wide, and local/regional distributor programs. As rules are updated, changes will be noted below.
