VAUGHAN, Ontario, Aug. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PowerStream has launched a unique contest to create awareness among customers of the benefits of paperless billing and the advantages of being able to access up to 24 months of billing and payment information online, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The 'Choose to Win' contest is unique in that it allows subscribers of PowerStream's eBilling service the opportunity to not only win a tablet but to also choose the type of tablet they would like to own. By switching to eBilling, PowerStream customers will be eligible to win one of five tablet and accessory packages of their choice, up to a maximum value of $1,000.

The contest is running until November 30, 2013. PowerStream customers currently signed up with the company's eBilling service are automatically included in the contest. Other PowerStream customers interested in participating in the contest, can do so by visiting www.PowerStream.ca, registering on "My Account Info" and selecting the eBilling option.

PowerStream's eBilling program is simple, economical and efficient. Designed with the end-user in mind, the program offers customers email notifications as to when their bills are available, which they can access securely online anytime and anywhere through PowerStream's website.

When retrieving their eBills, customers also have secure access to detailed account information, useful energy-saving tips and are able to compare their electricity usage by benchmarking it against other customers in their community. The eBilling service reduces the use of paper for billing purposes, which in turn helps to protect the environment.


  • "eBilling is a simple and convenient way for our customers to receive their bills," said Linas Medelis, PowerStream's Vice-President, Customer Service. "By offering an electronic method of bill delivery, we are providing our customers with a service option which is also environmentally-friendly."


  • PowerStream began promoting eBilling to its customers in November 2012. Since then, more than 10,000 customers have signed up for the service.
  • More than 70,000 PowerStream customers are currently registered to access their account information online through the company's website.


PowerStream is a community-owned energy services company providing power and related solutions to more than 360,000 customers residing or owning a business in communities located immediately north of Toronto and in Central Ontario. It is jointly owned by the Cities of Barrie, Markham and Vaughan.
