willow is interactive and filled with meaningful insight about your home’s energy. See a detailed breakdown of energy usage in terms of On-Peak, Mid-Peak and Off-Peak periods. A picture is worth a thousand words and that’s true with Willow.
Willow gives you visibility into your true carbon footprint by matching your home's hourly energy usage with the hourly carbon emissions intensity of the electricity grid. Carbon intensity is a simple indication of how clean (or dirty) the grid is.
Willow is packed with carefully curated content and tips for a happy, healthy, energy efficient home. Be an engaged citizen of the grid - or a ‘Gridizen’. It means saving money, taking action to reduce your impact and being part of a more sustainable future.
A beautifully simple way to explore, discover and understand your home’s energy. Through Ontario’s Green Button initiative, Willow securely connects with your home’s smart meter data and updates automatically every day. Each month is elegantly represented on the iPad by a willow branch and each day shown as a leaf. The colour of each willow and leaf paint a picture of your energy choices, habits and environmental footprint. Make better decisions around when you consume energy and enjoy how Willow visualizes that for you. Watch each day’s leaf appear and learn how even small changes make a big difference.
