Warning: Possible Scam
Milton Hydro has become aware of unauthorized calls being made to customers from a person claiming they were from “Save on Energy”. The caller wanted to check the furnace, air conditioner and hot water heater and then give a 10 minute talk on how to access incentives. The Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), formerly the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) does not call consumers to solicit participation in its programs. No IESO residential programs require door-to-door sales calls or the inspection of any heating and cooling equipment. The IESO does not charge a fee to participate in any of its conservation programs.
Customers are urged to visit the “Save on Energy” website at www.saveonenergy.ca for information on conservation programs and terms and conditions of the Heating and Cooling Incentive.
