Starting in 2018, certain large building owners will need to report their buildings’ energy and water use annually.


If you are the owner of a commercial, industrial or multi-residential property that is larger than 50,000 square feet, you may be required to report your property’s annual electricity usage data as part of the Energy and Water Reporting and Benchmarking (EWRB) for Large Buildings.


Ontario Regulation 20/17, made under the Green Energy Act, 2009, requires that large building owners report their annual electricity usage every year. This regulation requires Hydro One to aggregate your annual electricity usage for the property and make this data available to you, the property owner, on request, so that you can report your energy data to the Ministry of Energy by July 1st each year. The EWRB reporting requirements are being phased in over three years as shown in the following table.
 

 
​Deadline for Reporting to Ministry of Energy ​Commercial & Industrial Buildings Gross Floor Area Multi-Unit Residential Buildings (MURBs) Gross Floor Area​
​July 1, 2018
(usage for 2017 calendar year)
250,000 sq. ft. and larger Not required to report in first year
July 1, 2019
(usage for 2018 calendar year)
100,000 sq. ft. and larger 100,000 sq. ft. and larger
July 1, 2020
(usage for 2019 calendar year)
​50,000 sq. ft. and larger ​50,000 sq. ft. and larger

As part of phase one, only owners of commercial and industrial buildings with a gross floor area of 250,000 square feet or greater are required to report their 2017 electricity usage by July 1, 2018.


Please note that property owners or their third-party representatives should consult O. Reg. 20/17 and the ministry to determine their obligations.  Owners should carefully review this regulation to determine if they are required to report.

How to get started

 

1. Complete the form

To ensure that you receive your electricity usage data in a timely manner, please complete the request form. You will need to print the form so you can sign it.

Before you submit your form, please ensure that you have signed the form and have all of your building information, including your EWRB ID number issued by the Ministry of Energy, available. The Ministry recommends that you submit your request(s) to us by February 28 every year to ensure you receive the required data before the July 1 deadline. It is important that you give us at least six weeks to process your request(s) and to follow up with you if there is any missing information.

If you are a designated third-party representative, you may complete the form and request usage data on behalf of the property owner. To do this, the property owner must complete and sign the authorization section under Part A of the form as this authorizes us to release information to a third party. We cannot process a request for information from a third party without this section being completed and signed by the property owner.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Energy & Water Reporting and Benchmarking for Large Buildings (EWRB)?

Why do I need to measure my energy use?

Large buildings, such as offices, condominiums and retail stores, play an important role in fighting climate change and cutting greenhouse gas pollution. The goal of the regulation is to help you:

  • benchmark how much energy your building currently uses
  • identify ways to reduce your energy use and costs
  • compare your building with similar buildings
  • measure improvements over time

When do I have to start reporting?

I have multiple properties that qualify under the program. Do I need to make a submission for each property?

The February 28, 2018 deadline has passed. What happens now?
