Bruce Power has launched a free iPhone App to provide people in Ontario an interactive tool to better understand the cost of their energy bills and impact on Ontario’s air quality, along with a wealth of information on various topics through interactive features.

The popular online calculator allows users to create their own virtual energy supply mix.

“We recognize the important role we play in Ontario’s supply mix to keep electricity costs low for our families and businesses while protecting the air we breathe,” said Duncan Hawthorne, President and Chief Executive Officer. “This App provides people the opportunity to understand their own electricity bill better, while considering their impact on air quality.”

Earlier this year, Bruce Power launched an iPad version of the App and Hawthorne appears this week on the popular CTV show App Central, hosted by Amber Mac, to highlight the App’s many interactive educational features.
