Businesses across Ontario can benefit from making energy-saving changes and taking on energy efficiency programs in their facilities. From commercial buildings to industrial facilities, there are allies that want to encourage you to stop wasting energy and start saving money. Implementing energy-saving changes not only shrink your ecological footprint, they help you manage a better business in the process.
How Do Loading Dock Seals Encourage Efficiency?
The Loading Dock Seal helps improve energy conservation by providing a tight seal around highway trailers and city trucks to mitigate any air penetration or loss while overhead doors are in operation. The seal can preserve heated or cooled temperatures on the inside without air leakage that leads to wasted energy over time.
Loading Dock Seals are especially beneficial for facilities that specialize in manufacturing or transportation. Any facility that consistently uses the dock doors should have a weather-resistant and tear-resistant dock seal that can reduce draft and contribute to a more professional looking facility.
Investments that Give Back.
If you live in select areas of Ontario, you could be eligible to receive energy rebates from major electricity and gas providers from a variety of products, including:
Loading Dock Seals
The Enbridge Energy Dock Seal Rebate.
All loading dock seals that use Enbridge Energy are eligible for rebates in Ontario. Enbridge Energy is a leader in the safe and reliable delivery of energy in North America and partners with businesses to help transport, generate, and distribute energy throughout Canada.
Union Gas runs an incentive program that encourages energy efficiency and return on investment for businesses. There are specific rebates and incentives available depending on the facility. Union Gas offers Warehouse & Transportation Services rebates and incentives on the following:
When using a rebate on a loading dock seal, an energy rebate can amount to $200 per door. However, on average loading dock seal rebates generally land between $120 – $150 in cost coverage. Calculating the rebate is done by subtracting the rebate offer from the total unit price. This varies depending on how many units are sold.
In addition to the one-time rebate, there is a residual calculation that outlines how much you will be saving annually with your loading dock seal. This calculation will present a timeframe indicating when you reach your return on investment.
How Else Can I Save Money and Energy in My Facility?
Using a dock seal is a productive first step to reduce wasted energy and incur annual savings that would otherwise be found on your heating or cooling bill. Creating small changes like using efficient equipment, being mindful of building envelope characteristics, and managing how energy is used day-to-day in your facility, can save you more money and save more energy.
