Please use this form to request the annual electricity consumption data for your property from Halton Hills Hydro. Please email the completed form to: inquiries@haltonhillshydro.com and quote “EWRB for Large
Buildings Request Form” in the subject line. Remember to submit your data request as soon as possible. Requests may take up to four weeks to process from the receipt of this form. Requests received after June 1 may not be processed by the July 1 deadline.

Step 1: Gather the Necessary Information

Before we can provide the energy consumption data for your building, we will need the following information:

  • Ontario EWRB ID — a unique number provided by the Ministry of Energy (MOE) to large building owners
  • The assessment roll number and property code for your building — information which you can find on your property assessment and tax bill, or the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) website
  • Gross floor area of the building for which you are requesting the energy consumption report

If you are a property manager, energy consultant or other third party requesting energy consumption data on behalf of a property owner, the owner must complete and sign the authorization in Section A of this form in order to authorize Halton Hills Hydro to release the data to you. Halton Hills Hydro cannot process a request from a third party if that section isn’t completed and signed.

Step 2: Complete and Submit This Form
