Some Ottawa households may soon be able to connect with their energy system remotely through a mobile smartphone app, web portal and energy “dashboard”.

Ontario announced Monday a $2.9 million investment in Ottawa-based Energate Inc., which they say could save users up to 30 per cent on their hydro bills.

During the next year and a half, Energate will install its smart energy thermostat displays in more than 1,000 homes throughout the province, allowing users remotely control their energy systems.
