TIVERTON, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/10/13 -- Bruce Power has launched a free iPad App to provide people in Ontario an interactive tool to better understand the cost of their energy bills and impact on Ontario's air quality, along with a wealth of information on various topics through interactive features.
"We recognize the important role we play in Ontario's supply mix to keep electricity costs low for our families and businesses while protecting the air we breathe," said Duncan Hawthorne, President and Chief Executive Officer. "This App provides people the opportunity to understand their own electricity bill better, while considering their impact on air quality."
The App also provides extensive information on the role Bruce Power plays in Ontario to provide a safe, reliable source of affordable electricity through videos, news feeds and interactive figures. As a community-minded company, the App also features Bruce Power's extensive engagement efforts to improve the lives of people in communities it serves and also provides user tips on things we can all do to conserve electricity.
"Some people may think it's strange that an energy company is launching an App but we recognize these forms of communications are highly popular and growing in demand and usage," Hawthorne added. "We are a company that has always been focused on the future and this is the future of communications."
The free App can be downloaded at www.brucepowerapp.com. Users who download the App before June 15 have the opportunity to enter a draw to win free electricity for a year.
Bruce Power has many avenues to keep connected to the community. We are active on Twitter (@Bruce_Power) and update our Community Blog regularly. Bruce Power also has a YouTube channel called BrucePower4You.
