Mississauga, ON – As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, and more customers are switching to paperless ebilling, Alectra is launching a new ‘Go online for our frontline’ campaign aimed at supporting Ontario's frontline healthcare workers.

Alectra will donate the savings from customers who switch to paperless ebilling between April 1 and July 15, 2021 to The Frontline Fund – with a commitment of donating $50,000. In addition to supporting frontline healthcare workers, and to help convert consumers to ebilling, Alectra is also launching a contest providing customers who sign up for ebilling the opportunity to win free electricity for a year.

“As a member of the communities in which we serve and operate, Alectra wants to give back to those most impacted by COVID-19,” said Brian Bentz, President & CEO, Alectra Inc. “We encourage our customers to go online and switch to the paperless ebilling option to take advantage of ebilling convenience, while also helping our frontline healthcare workers with supplies and research funding during this global pandemic.” 

More than 280,000 Alectra customers already enjoy paperless ebilling conveniences, which include:

  • Same look as a paper bill, but more secure.
  • Anytime-access, with all your bills online in one place.
  • Instant email reminder when a statement is ready to be viewed.
  • Easily downloaded for other uses.
  • Better for the environment than paper mail.
  • Safe, convenient, contactless.

Alectra employees and customers have previously stepped up to help their communities during COVID-19 through various campaigns including donating more than 300,000 meals to Feed Ontario and close to $400,000 to United Way’s COVID-relief efforts in 2020.
