Energy and Water Reporting

Energy and Water Reporting required for your large building? We’re here to help.

Are you the owner of a commercial, industrial or multi-residential property that is larger than 100,000 square feet? Your first Energy & Water Reporting and Benchmarking (EWRB) report is due on July 1, 2019. We’re here to help.

Email us at EWRB@alectrautilities.com or call us at 1-877-631-9945 to request your building’s 2018 electricity consumption data and water consumption data, if Alectra is your water and wastewater biller (Hamilton, Markham and Vaughan). There is no charge for this service.

Please identify yourself as the building owner, agent for building owner and/or key contact. If you are the agent, please include authorization from the owner to release the consumption information. We will also need the following building/property information:

  • Alectra account number(s)
  • Building owner’s name
  • Service address

Let us know if the property has multiple buildings at one street address or if the building has more than one street address. Other helpful information is your Ontario EWRB ID, the unique number provided by the Ministry of Energy to large building owners, and the municipal assessment roll number and property code for the building.

The Province of Ontario’s EWRB regulation is designed to help you make informed decisions about improving your building’s energy and water efficiency. As the annually-reported results are reviewed over time, you will see how a particular building compares to itself over previous years and tangible effects in energy, water and greenhouse gas reductions.

The reporting deadlines are being phased in over three years based on a property's size. For commercial or industrial buildings, if the building is at least:

  • 250,000 square feet or larger, the first report was due on July 1, 2018
  • 100,000 square feet or larger, the first report is due on July 1, 2019
  • 50,000 square feet or larger, the first report is due on July 1, 2020

If a multi-unit residential building is:

  • 100,000 square feet or larger, the first report is due on July 1, 2019
  • 50,000 square feet or larger, the first report is due on July 1, 2020

To request your 2018 data, email Alectra at EWRB@alectrautilities.com or call us at 1-877-631-9945. Questions about reporting, benchmarking or the regulation, please contact the Ministry of Energy by phone at 1-844-274-0689 or email to EWRBSupport@ontario.ca.
