GRIDWATCH HELPS MAKE ONTARIO'S ELECTRICITY GRID VISIBLE.
//Hourly Power & Demand
Track Ontario’s electricity grid hour-by-hour and plant-by-plant using the most current, trustworthy data. Gridwatch breaks out the total generation by fuel type with an option to drill down further for hourly capability and output figures for each power plant. Gridwatch also tracks hourly imports, exports and Ontario's Provincial demand.
//Total Emissions & Intensity
See the total carbon emissions and carbon intensity of Ontario's electricity grid. Drill down into the equivalent emissions in terms of cars and trees to put things in context. Backed by a peer reviewed and published methodology, carbon intensity is a simple indication of how clean (or dirty) the grid is.
//Power Plant Details
Gridwatch not only breaks down total generation by fuel type but also by individual power plant. Each plant's capability and actual contribution a listed for every hour. Want to know more about a specific plant? Location, owner/operator and a specific knowledge nugget is provided for each facility.
//Maps & Trends
View all power plant locations colour coded by fuel type on an interactive map of Ontario. Filter by fuel type, zoom in/out and tap for details about the specific plant. Track both power and emissions trends for the current day along with Ontario's Time-Of-Use schedule. Interact with the trend graphs to see the impact each fuel type has on the grid.
A note to our users outside of Ontario: Gridwatch only tracks the Province of Ontario's electricity grid and does so in Eastern Time.

Ratings and Reviews
Nice overview of how the power grid works!
Im so happy I stubbled upon this app! I love the detail of where our power is coming and every location of the sources in Ontario. Doesn’t seem to have an update for the last 3 years but hope to get an option to see a history of the power usage for the day or week instead of just the past hour!
This app gives you a real time visualization of electrical generation in Ontario’s grid. It does this very well. My wish list item would be to get longer term views of the same information.
Ontario energy production app
Really insightful as to what’s going on in real time with our energy production. Has caused me to re-evaluate actual value of very inconsistent solar production.
