Energate Inc., a provider of demand response and home energy management solutions for utilities, has debuted its Consumer Engagement for the Smart Grid (CESG) program in Ontario, Canada.

The company says qualified Ontario consumers can now opt into the program via participating local distribution companies (LDCs) or directly through Energate online to receive a fully funded Energate Foundation smart thermostat and home energy gateway. The Foundation delivers energy information and controls based on time-of-use pricing.

Up to 1,000 homes in Ontario will be equipped with these technologies as a part of the CESG demonstration program. Homeowners will provide feedback to Energate, Ontario's Ministry of Energy and the distribution utilities on the value of the Foundation thermostat and gateway.

Participating LDCs include Cambridge & North Dumfries Hydro, Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro, Waterloo North Hydro, Hydro One, Hydro Ottawa, Peterborough Utilities, PowerStream and Veridian Connections.
