About us

Every Kilowatt Counts (EKC) is an online resource with information about programs, services and actions you can take to achieve greater efficiency through energy saving in your home and business. You’ll also learn about the benefits of efficient energy saving.

Energy saving is important for the world around us as it directly affects our natural habitat. We are burning fossil fuels to get the energy we need to do things in our everyday lives. The problem is that we don’t think about how the burning of these fuels affect our natural environment and everything in it. Fresh water, the air, weather conditions, the wind, the rain, animals and plants, everything is affected by our actions.

EKC is brought to you by the Ontario Power Authority. The Ontario Power Authority’s mission is to contribute to the development of a reliable and sustainable electricity system. We do this by promoting conservation and the efficient use of electricity, as well as by ensuring adequate electricity supply from a variety of sources.
