Over the past few months, several member LDCs have achieved a significant service milestone with the launch of their Green Button initiatives. Through these innovative programs, local hydro utilities are helping customers better manage their electricity bills in the many communities they operate.

EDA members have been serving their customers for more than one hundred years, and we continue to have our fingers on the pulse of what Ontarians need from their electricity system. That is why we understand and support Green Button’s enormous potential to transform how we engage with our customers – by empowering them with more choice and control over their energy usage.

Increasingly, households and businesses are embracing new ways to manage their power use… while at the same time exploring electric vehicles, renewable generation, battery storage, and cost-saving technology that helps reduce energy waste. The Green Button standard allows you to download the data about your usage, which you can then share with third-party apps for advice on reducing your electricity consumption.
