AEP Industries Inc.

In support of AEP Canada’s commitment towards environmental sustainability, together with our recent association with AIB food safety standards for packaging, a new energy efficient lighting system was installed. The mandate for the new lighting included lowering energy consumption, improving the overall lighting environment for safety and quality, and complying with food packaging standards for AIB certification.

As a Toronto Hydro customer, we launched our Save-On-Energy retrofit incentive application with the help of our Toronto Hydro representative and contacted two lighting suppliers to bid on the project. But before we confirmed an agreement with either lighting vendor, we were introduced to Greg Jones from NexGen Energy Group. As one of NexGen Energy Group’s Executive Energy Consultants, Greg reviewed our proposed application with the Save-On-Energy program and made recommendations that resulted in capturing over $10,000.00 in additional incentive funding.

NexGen Energy Group’s overall turnkey project cost, combined with securing close to twice the incentive funding, made choosing NexGen Energy Group an easy decision.

The only available time to install our new lighting was during the summer shutdown. This was a very limited window of opportunity. Crucial production areas can only be down for one week. Coordinating this project to ensure we kept our customer’s orders on-track was imperative. We were relying on Greg and his installation team to ensure our project met our timelines.

I am pleased to say that all of our expectations and objectives were met. The project was installed on time, and the installation team was a pleasure to work with. The new lighting is much brighter and the energy savings (for lighting) are projected to be 60% – with a payback of only 1-year!

I would highly recommend NexGen Energy Group Energy Services to anyone contemplating a lighting retrofit. It was a real pleasure working with Greg. His commitment to our complete satisfaction was always evident and proved to be a valuable resource throughout the project.”

“Given the challenge of meeting all the health and safety compliance issues of our industry, as well as installing the entire project over the Christmas holidays during our shutdown, I would like to complement everyone on the NexGen Energy Group team for an outstanding job!”

“Thank you so much for taking on the role of updating our lighting in the front office areas.  We had a lot to do and getting the government grant queued in with a multiple trade renovation was no small feat.

Your team was quick, concise and professional.  

You even added additional cost savings by not installing all the LED’s that I had ordered to replace the old outdated fixtures. This was because the new lighting was much brighter than expected in our environment after the painting was completed.

Thank you again for knocking it out of the park on this update. I would be happy to use you again on any other energy reduction program that Bestway initiates or give you a referral to anyone thinking of updating there lighting.”

“The lighting retrofit here is complete and our guys couldn’t be happier. I wanted to thank you for the excellent services throughout the entire project. We had competing quotes for this project, but it was crystal clear to me from the beginning that Greg and his team brought superior experience and expertise to the table.

 Everything went exactly as planned and none of our regular day-to-day operations were interrupted. It was a pleasure to work with NexGen Energy Group. Please feel free to use me as a reference whenever you like.”

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the lighting retrofit work that you recently completed in our Mississauga facility.

The “turn-key” service that NexGen Energy Group provided us included but was not limited to;

  • Initial consultation, planning & design.
  • O.I. calculation.
  • Incentive application, submission and approval.
  • Disposal of existing fixtures.
  • Trouble shooting.

The whole project was completed on time, on budget and all work was carried out effectively, professionally and safely with zero disruption to our manufacturing and office teams.

The clarity of information that NexGen provided was fundamental in securing corporate approval to move this project ahead and we look forward to a significant reduction in energy usage.

The improvement in the overall appearance of our facility is immeasurable.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your team and would be happy to welcome any potential clients to our facility so that they can see the quality of your work for themselves.

Thanks again.
