Ontario Gives Green Button a Spin
A group of vendors, in partnership with Hydro One and London Hydro and supported by the Canadian Ministry of Energy, are conducting a Green Button pilot in Ontario, Canada, to give Ontarians direct access to their own energy data through a secure download from their utility’s website. The 4.7 million smart meters installed in homes and small businesses across the province enable consumers to access their own consumption data via the use of third-party apps.
The pilot program is being led by MaRS Discovery District, whose MaRS Data Catalyst enables electricity consumption data access through the adoption of the Green Button Standard, already popular in the US.
Apps from Energent, BuiltSpace, Eyedro and Zerofootprint will be made available to consumers in London Hydro and Hydro One’s service territories throughout the duration of the year-long pilot program.
