Get connected with information on energy consumption, charges on your bill and smart savings opportunities by talking to your local hydro or gas program provider.
Utility providers are a great resource for understanding your usage. Many provide online access to your consumption profile that you can use to understand when and how you use energy. Some even offer access to privacy-safe profiles of your neighbourhood’s average energy consumption so you can compare how your energy use shapes up. Contact your local hydro or gas provider to find out how you can log on to your account information.
