Access Your Energy Data

Understanding Green Button: Your Key to Ontario Utility Data

Ontario Utility Green Button Solutions are a regulated requirement O.Reg 633/21: Energy Data for Electricity and Natural Gas Utilities in Ontario (50+ Utilities). There is also a small group of water Utilities that have voluntarily taken on this initiative. The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) oversees the Utilities per regulation and has established  a Green Button Industry-led Working Group (GB IWG).

The GB IWG is an industry-led forum for distributors and other interested volunteer stakeholders to address issues that arise on the implementation of this Province-wide initiative since 2022. From this forum, 1000’s of hours have been provided to help the market succeed in its goal to provide digital billing and metering data for the first time in North America. The GB IWG has unanimously created FAQs and Best Practices to assist in the implementation.  The OEB has also provided guidance on the regulation and this implementation to assist everyone in the education of this Ontario-wide digital strategy.
