“Cool! I can finally answer questions like: how much power is coming from coal right now? Or: how much carbon are we emitting? It’s all in the app with no spin or political agenda.”
MAKES THE GRID EASY TO UNDERSTAND
Gridwatch shows the whole Ontario power system in the palm of your hand. With Gridwatch, you can see:
- Fuel sources. What types of power is Ontario using right now?
- Energy use patterns. How do they change by hour, day, and season?
- Carbon emissions. How much are “dirty” sources pumping into the air?
- Time-Of-Use metering. How do these policies relate to the big picture?
