That’s how you do it: offer customers who register for ebilling a one-time $10 credit!

Registering for ebilling with Guelph Hydro Electric Systems is paying off in more ways than one for Guelph Hydro customers. In 2015, Guelph Hydro introduced its 1-2-3, Plant a Tree, in which the company plants one tree for every 10 customers who sign up for electronic billing (ebilling).

The first year of the program was a great success, with more than 5,000 Guelph Hydro customers registering for ebilling, saving 60,000 pieces of paper and 60,000 envelopes and 500 trees were planted.

And of course that is very nice, but most of all it is a sort of greenwashing. Because the real benefit in implementing e-billing lies at….exactly…..the supplier. But hold on there is more:

Guelph Hydro introduces a $10 ebill credit

Now, in addition to planting trees, Guelph Hydro has introduced a one-time $10 credit for every customer who registers for ebilling.

“Ebilling offers customers a convenient and easy way to manage their electricity bills and our partnership with Trees for Guelph is a natural fit, reflecting the environmental benefits of switching to paperless billing while helping to build Guelph’s urban forest. We’re pleased with the number of customers who have taken part so far and hope to be able to donate double the number of trees next year.”

“By introducing this new $10 credit, we hope to be able to give customers who haven’t yet signed up for ebilling that little extra incentive.”

The credit is automatically applied to the bills of all active Guelph Hydro customers who are billed for electricity, register for ebilling, and receive an electronic bill for at least three consecutive months, including those who registered for ebilling prior to August 1, 2016.
