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.
