Hydro Ottawa selects Opower's demand response solution


Hydro Ottawa chose Opower to help customers save energy and money during the summer’s hottest days.

With the selection, Hydro Ottawa becomes the first Canadian utility to deploy Opower’s behavioral demand response solution, driven by a collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Energy.

The solution helps utilities like Hydro Ottawa engage their customers with highly personalized communications before and after hours of peak energy use. The alerts provide steps they can take to reduce their energy consumption during peak use periods on the hottest days, saving money and lowering their monthly bills in the process.

ComEd, BG&E and Glendale Water & Power are among the utilities deploying Opower’s BDR solution this summer. The program will reach 1.5 million homes in 2015 — twice as many as the year before.
