Did you know that the annual energy trade between the United States and Canada exceeds $100 billion, forming the largest integrated energy market in the world? Today, Opower is excited to announce a new kind of energy export with our friendly neighbors to the north: one that will help them save energy.
Opower is partnering with Efficiency Nova Scotia – a nonprofit organization that helps homeowners and businesses use energy better – to bring our Home Energy Reports to 90,000 homes and apartments across the province. In addition to educating households how their energy consumption compares to their neighbors and varies over time, the reports will provide customized tips and links to Efficiency Nova Scotia programs to help reduce household electricity consumption.
The program is scheduled to run for three years, during which participants will receive their Home Energy Reports throughout each year. A customer web portal will also be available later this spring on Efficiency Nova Scotia’s website, featuring even more detailed energy use data, tips and tools.
As Opower’s international presence continues to expand – we now have partnerships in England, France, Australia, New Zealand and more to be announced soon – we are thrilled to be launching a program just across the border. We look forward to growing our impact across Canada and helping more utility customers save energy in the future.
