An updated version of the popular Bruce Power iPhone app is now available.
This version features two new calculators that will help people track their carbon footprint and energy usage, in addition to the cost and clean air calculator from Version 1. The ‘Gas vs Electric’ calculator shows people the money they’d save on fuel and how they’d lessen their impact on the environment by driving an electric car instead of gas-powered. The ‘Conserve at Home’ calculator explains how much money you can save by operating household appliances at mid- and off-peak hours.
Bruce Power has always considered energy education to be an important part of our outreach efforts,
said James Scongack, Vice President, Corporate Affairs.
“Our updated iPhone app, and the calculators you’ll find on it, give you a very clear understanding of how nuclear is a safe and cost-effective option compared to many other electricity options, while also providing ways people can lessen their carbon footprint.”
The iPhone app is available through the iTunes store. If you don’t have an iPhone, the three calculators are also available at www.brucepower.com.
About Bruce Power
Bruce Power operates the world’s largest operating nuclear generating facility and is the source of roughly 25% of Ontario’s electricity. The company’s site in Tiverton, Ontario is home to eight CANDU reactors, each one capable of generating enough low-cost, reliable, safe and clean electricity to meet the annual needs of a city the size of Hamilton. Formed in 2001, Bruce Power is an all-Canadian partnership among TransCanada, Borealis Infrastructure Management (a division of the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System) as well as the Power Workers’ Union and Society of Energy Professionals. A majority of Bruce Power’s employees are also owners in the business.
