Hydro Ottawa’s app works as a personal energy advisor by providing residential customers with relevant, timely and personal insights related to their electricity account including electricity usage and power outage information. The appliance specific electricity usage profiles allow residential customers to begin to understand where, when and how much electricity they are using and how they can better manage their consumption. Comparisons to similar homes in the neighbourhood provide residential customers with a benchmark for behavioural change.
