We have partnered with Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro, Waterloo North Hydro, Union Gas, ecobee and Ecofitt to offer a pilot program using the ecobee EMS Si thermostat. The objective of the pilot is to evaluate potential energy savings available from the use of the thermostat to manage heating and cooling loads in small business buildings.

The pilot will run from November 14, 2016 to December 31, 2017 and is open to 1,000 small businesses in Waterloo Region and County of Brant, including:

  • Retail
  • Restaurant and food service
  • Owner-operated light manufacturing
  • Small office space
  • Multi-site customers, where more than one location can be managed together on the system

Is ecobee right for your business?

Ideal for small businesses where a basic programmable thermostat is not enough, and a building automation system is too complex. Visit for more information.Some conditions apply.
