"Compare Usage in My Area" is an online benchmarking tool that compares your usage with your neighbourhood based on bills issued within the same postal code area on the same day and for the same time period.

Do I use less electricity than my neighbours?

In My Account, customers can select "usage" for kWh consumption comparison or "amount" for dollar value comparison of the bill's "electricity" charges. Variances in results between usage and amount comparisons can indicate electricity use during different Time-of-Use periods or accounts on fixed price retail contracts. Customers for whom Alectra Utilities (formerly PowerStream) is their water/wastewater billing agent can also compare "water" in addition to "electricity".
