Request building usage history

If you need historical electricity use data for your multi-unit residential, strata property or mixed-used building, you can request it online.

Before you begin, make sure you've reviewed our information about accessing building usage history.

You'll need:

  • A list of service addresses or BC Hydro account numbers
  • The time period you need data for, typically the past 12 months
  • If you're a contractor or consultant: proof of authorization [PDF, 59 KB] from the BC Hydro account holder that you have consent to request this data

What to expect after you submit your request:

  • We can process most requests within five business days. If it'll take longer, we'll contact you.
  • You'll receive a report (.xls format) that shows the building's electricity use data for the specified time period, down to the shortest time interval available for the account type.
  • If demand and power factor are measured for the address, it will be included.
  • If possible, we'll include a summary for you or your contractor.
