Ingersoll, ON – ERTH Power Corporation is pleased to announce that it is set to deploy its Green Button solution starting in January of 2022.

In partnership and collaboration with Savage Data SystemsUtilismart Corporation, and SilverBlaze, the solution will allow customers to access Green Button data through the comfort of their existing SilverBlaze self-serve customer portal (MyAccount). The ERTH GB Connector, powered by Savage Data Systems, will manage the requirements of the Green Button standard but will also be available for deployment in any existing customer portal. As a result, ERTH Power will be able to offer a seamless customer experience and not need to deploy new systems, thereby mitigating cost impacts.  Savage Data Systems will work with NorthStar and Utilismart Corporation to connect the customer and billing data that is required. “The security of our customer data is paramount. By using our existing systems, it not only makes it easier for our customers, but it also gives us the comfort of knowing that our data is secure,” explained Graig Pettit, Vice President & General Manager of ERTH Power. “The ERTH GB Connector tool means we are not integrating data to yet another location to be further synchronized and managed. That was a risk we were not prepared to take!” added Pettit.

“We are excited to join forces with ERTH Corporation on this project. Both companies have a proven track record of outstanding customer service and exceptional products,” stated Ron Savage, President of Savage Data Systems.

“Collaboration amongst proven technology and solution providers will generate the needed efficiencies for Ontario LDCs creating cost-effective solutions that work,” added Steve Ray, President of Utilismart Corporation.

The deployment of ERTH’s Green Button solution comes following the Ontario Government’s recent announcement, which mandated that all Ontario utilities must implement a Green Button solution within two years. ERTH is represented on the OEB Industry-Led GB working group by Laurie Palmer, Chief Operating Officer of ERTH. “With the ERTH GB Connector solution set to begin implementation in January 2022, we are confident that ERTH Power and our clients will be well-positioned to meet the needs of the market”, says Palmer.
