2008 Conservation Programs

There are a series of programs intended to help Ontarians achieve their Summer Savings:

Peak Saver

Joining the peaksaver program means you can help reduce the demand for electricity in your community. And you'll feel great knowing you're doing something good for the environment.

It's no sweat to participate. Just sign up to allow your participating local electricity distribution company (LDC) to cycle down your air conditioning temporarily. It will help reduce the strain on the electricity system on summer days when electricity use is at its peak.


The Great Refrigerator Roundup

Let Newmarket Hydro and the Ontario Power Authority help you get rid of your electricity-guzzling old second fridge. We’ll come right into your home to get it, and dispose of it in an environmentally-sensitive way.


Cool Savings Rebate Program

You can qualify for up to $550 in rebates by replacing your air conditioning system with an ENERGY STAR®-qualified model. Participating heating and cooling contractors and program details can be found at:



Every Kilowatt Counts

Newmarket Hydro is proud to support the OPA’s Every Kilowatt Counts program. Watch for more than $35 in coupons on energy-efficient products that will help you reduce your lighting and heating costs, as well as reduce “phantom load.” Remember to visit the Every Kilowatt Counts page on September 18 to download your coupons or simply visit your retailer.
