Utility Information

Utility information is primarily required to provide utility services and ensure accurate and appropriate billing for those services.

Examples of Utility Information

  • Consumption data about electricity, water, and waste management services

  • Service location

Using Utility Information

The primary use of utility information is customer billing, utility service delivery, and service management and improvement efforts. The information may also be used to inform you about utility-related programs and services available to you. Utility information may also be used for aggregate analysis to determine usage demand and infrastructure load patterns.
