The Green Button initiative was inspired by a similar movement in the U.S to provide utility customers with easy and secure access to their energy usage information in a consumer-friendly and computer-friendly format. The province of Ontario saw this as an opportunity to leverage their investment in smart meters for greater energy conservation and economic growth.
Here’s how it works:
Sign in to your personal utility account and look for an option to download your data, or contact your utility for more information on data access. Here is the list of participating utilities:
- Festival Hydro
