In August 2016, Hydro Ottawa launched its ‘One Small Change’ E-Billing campaign which ran until December 31, 2016. Hydro Ottawa made a $5 donation to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) for every customer who signed up for E-Billing.
Going paperless was made easy and convenient for our customers, and it also helped the “little” ones at CHEO.
The funds from the 2016 E-Billing campaign went to the hospital to upgrade its vital (and paperless!) patient monitors. CHEO uses these electronic monitors almost every minute of every day across almost all inpatient units. These important pieces of equipment measure a child’s temperature, pulse, breathing rate and blood pressure. The monitors will be compatible with CHEO’s electronic health record system and provide ongoing critical information to the medical team in real time at their fingertips.
Customers also had the opportunity to double the impact and convenience – Hydro Ottawa donated an additional $5 for every customer who registered for automated payments.
E-Billing is convenient, easy to use and completely secure, not to mention environmentally friendly.
This campaign is another way we contribute to our community in which we live and work – which has always been part of our mission.
