The Custom-made project component subsidizes measures related to the use of natural gas in production processes and energy efficient equipment that are not covered under other Gazifère programs. This component also aims to subsidize measures related to the envelopes and mechanics of buildings using natural gas. Gazifère is offering $1 per cubic metre of natural gas saved, up to 40% of the incremental cost of the measure or $75,000*.

How to participate?
Organize a feasibility study or an energy simulation
In the case of an existing building, the measures to be implemented must be recommended as part of a feasibility study carried out or approved by a professional engineer. In the case of a new building, the measures must be recommended as part of an energy simulation.
Consult the Feasibility Study and Implementation component to learn more about the financial assistance provided by Gazifère for this first step.
Consult the participant’s guide for the support for initiatives program (new building or existing building)

Wait for Gazifère’s decision on financial assistance
Gazifère will review the request for participation before issuing the financial assistance. The information received will be submitted to an external consultant.
