Toronto Hydro® wants to encourage business owners to make electricity saving renovations on their buildings. BIP pays incentives for “locked-in” electricity savings.

Context knew that it wasn’t enough to reach to owners, but also to reach out to those who had a big influence in any renovation project – the architects, designers, engineers and contractors. They were the ones who specified the exact equipment that could cut down electricity use.
