Thunder Bay RetrofitThunder Bay Hydro recognized four local businesses at its 2015 Retrofit Excellence in Energy Efficiency & Conservation Awards. Each award recipient has made a significant impact on Thunder Bay’s green economy over the past year, demonstrating leadership to save energy by participating in the Thunder Bay Hydro saveONenergy Retrofit Program. The conservation program provides incentives for commercial operations to install newer, more energy efficient solutions.

Two new awards have been added to this year’s initiative. The Not-For-Profit Award recognizes one local organization that has exhibited leadership in energy efficiency through the Retrofit Program, while the Electrical Distributor Award is being presented to the distributor that conducted the highest amount of retrofits in the community this year. 

The recipients of the 2015 Retrofit Excellence in Energy Efficiency & Conservation Awards are as follows:

Best Western PLUS Nor’Wester Hotel & Conference Centre

- Interior & Exterior LED Lighting

Bombardier Transportation in Thunder Bay

- Installed commercial high-bay lighting

George Jeffrey Children’s Centre

- LED lighting fixtures

MGM Electric Limited

- Secured the most Retrofit projects in 2014

The Retrofit Program involves upgrades to high efficiency equipment such as lighting, motors and heating, and for installing new control systems. In 2014 over 100 retrofits were completed in Thunder Bay, saving over 3.9 million kWh. In total $493,000 was paid out in incentives to local participating businesses. “It is exciting to see the increasing adoption of energy efficient solutions by local organizations;” stated Jake Allen, Energy Services Advisor of Thunder Bay Hydro. “Better energy management can help organizations cut costs but in addition to as helping the bottom line, many organizations know that energy efficiency is a substantial business growth opportunity.”

Thunder Bay Hydro Conservation is now seeking 2015 RETROFIT Recruits to participate in the program over the next year.  Allen added “With a large focus on lighting in 2014, we are challenging Thunder Bay businesses to consider upgrading HVAC units, motors, controls, ventilation systems along with refrigeration.

Today we are all concerned with the energy we consume within our homes. But how many truly understand the ins and outs of home energy use, and where exactly does the electrician and the development of energy management systems come into play.

And beyond that are manufacturers developing products designed to help electricians and consumers better understand residential energy use? Throughout this article we will deal with each of these important questions.

Jeremy Herrington

Total Electrical Solutions was founded in 2013 by Jeremy Herrington in Quispamsis, on the outskirts of Saint John, New Brunswick. Since 2013 Jeremy has steadily grown Total Electrical Solutions in the residential, commercial and construction sectors. The growth is primarily the result of Jeremy’s customer first philosophy, plus his over 20 years of industry experience.

Jeremy grew up learning about the industry from his father who was an electrical contractor. Jeremy spent his early years helping and watching his father as a contractor and business owner. After high school Jeremy was, like many, not wholly aware of the course he wished to take and so he began an electrical apprenticeship at his father’s company.
