Green Button data

On November 1, 2021, the Ontario Ministry of Energy announced that electricity and natural gas utilities across the province must provide their customers with access to Green Button data no later than November 1, 2023.

Green Button is a data standard that provides utility customers with more choice in how they access their electricity and natural gas data, and in our case also water and wastewater data. 

Utilities Kingston is unique in Ontario, as we offer our customers the ability to access their data for four utility services: water, wastewater, natural gas and electricity.

With a simple and secure process, customers can securely download or connect (share) their energy usage data in an industry-standard format with registered third parties. Rest assured, data is shared in accordance with our privacy policy.
