With fall on the horizon, the EDA wanted to take this opportunity to recognize all the work that our members did throughout the summer to support their customers and the communities they serve. Our members are always stepping up to the plate to help their communities even in these unprecedented times.

Here are just a few examples:

Energy+ donated $20,000 to the Brant United Way and the Waterloo United Way’s COVID-19 community response fund. The company matched donations made by employees and board members.

North Bay Hydro funded the plating of 37 large tree species in three locations across their city.

Hydro One donated $25,000 to the Markham Stouffville Hospital for ventilators and in partnership with GlobalMedic delivered 575 critical aid kits to the Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory.

Elexicon Energy donated $5,000 to four food banks to help support the community agencies amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

Alectra’s employees and customers stepped up for their communities and collectively, with two separate campaigns, raised over $140,000 for Feed Ontario and its member food banks which will provide 420,000 meals to the people most in need.

Oshawa Power launched the Compassion Fund to assist Residential Customers that are having difficulty paying their bills.

These are just a few examples of what local hydro utilities are doing across Ontario to help make life a little easier for their customers throughout these challenging times.

Thank you to all our members, keep up the great work.
