Frequently Asked Questions

  • If I tell you I’m interested, am I obligated in any way?

    Nope! We are gathering names to start. We will connect with you to help set up your ESPM profile or get your ESPM ID, but if you decide there isn’t value in seeing your own energy use data, you are not obligated to continue. After we’ve set that up, each additional step will be outlined to you and you can choose to progress forward or opt out.

  • Do I need my energy use information to participate?

    We can facilitate you authorizing the utility provider(s) to automatically sync your data into your account, at which point you can choose what data to forward to us.

  • Is my data going to be publicly shared?

    This program has two components, benchmarking and disclosure. We encourage participation in the benchmarking component even if disclosure is not an option for you. Disclosure of your data will be a choice you can make after you have information available about your building's performance. We will never share your data without your consent. Assuming you do choose to disclose, if needed your consent can be revoked at any time.

  • Could my performance data get me in trouble?

    Nope! There are no regulations in place that require specific performance, so sharing your data into this program will not get you in trouble.

  • What do I need to get started?

    Today we just need to collect your contact information and number of buildings, but soon you will need; building name and address, total gross floor area of property, year of construction, primary property type, and some account information from your BC Hydro and/or Fortis BC statements.

  • What's the deadline?

    Sign up by March 31st 2020 to guarantee your spot in the program. We will send out some initial information right away, and then reach out sometime before the end of May to help you get set up with ESPM and connected into the program. Those who sign up earlier will get information and help earlier!
