Hydro One Networks launches paperless eBilling delivery service with epost(TM)



    Customers can now choose electronic delivery of their Hydro One Networks
    bills and enter to win a laptop package or a $50 credit on their bill

    TORONTO, April 3 /CNW/ - Hydro One Networks customers now have the option
of receiving their electricity bills via the web. Canada Post has joined
forces with Hydro One Networks to offer these bills online through epost,
Canada Post's online mail delivery service. Customers will be able to sign up
to receive their Hydro One Networks bills electronically through the free
epost service at either www.epost.ca or at the online banking sites of major
Canadian financial institutions.
    Hydro One Networks business, commercial and residential customers who
sign up for a free epost box(TM) (a personal electronic mailbox) will be able
to subscribe to these bills and view them in a safe, secure manner online.
Once the client has viewed their bills, he or she can then pay them by linking
to the online banking sites of most major financial institutions. The bills
can be stored in the epost system for up to seven years.
    "Hydro One Networks is committed to providing our customers with the best
consumer experience possible. Our customers have told us that they would like
the option of receiving their bill online and we are responding to that
demand," said Mark Fukuzawa, Director of Customer Care at Hydro One Networks.
"With no paper bills to open or file, we're also giving customers the
opportunity to manage their bill in a more environmentally friendly manner."
    "We have always viewed Hydro One Networks as an innovative leader," said
Susie De Franco, General Manager of Multichannel Solutions at Canada Post.
    Hydro One Networks joins many other Mailers in Ontario offering the epost
service. In addition to their electricity bills, Hydro One Networks customers
who register with epost can receive and pay more than 200 other documents from
100 companies (called Mailers) available to epost's three and a half million
registered users.
    To encourage customers to sign up for the service, Hydro One Networks and
Canada Post are offering a contest: anyone who signs up by June 15, 2007 for
the epost service who chooses to receive their Hydro One Networks bills
electronically will be eligible to win a laptop package valued at $2,000, or
one of fifty $50 credits on their Hydro One Networks bill. For more
