On August 13, Port Colborne's Frank's Home Building Centre store owner, Frank Danch, was presented with a $517 Electricity Retrofit Incentive Program (ERIP) cheque by Canadian Niagara Power. This was in recognition of the electricity savings achieved through a lighting retrofit completed at the store.

The Electricity Retrofit Incentive Program, offered by Canadian Niagara Power and the Ontario Power Authority, provides incentives for commercial, industrial, agricultural and institutional customers who complete electrical retrofits that result in demand savings and/or annual energy savings. By installing energy-efficient lighting throughout the store, the program will help reduce their environmental footprint, provide better illumination levels and reduced energy consumption.

The conservation programs for businesses offered by Canadian Niagara Power assist customers undergoing retrofits they might otherwise not be able to complete. Money saved on energy is money that can be directed instead to other priorities. We congratulate Mr. Danch, and Frank's Home Building Centre, on taking a pro-active, leadership role in energy conservation in our community.
