What is a Hilo challenge?

Hilo challenges occur during peak consumption periods between December 1 and March 31 at a rate of up to 30 times per winter period. For the challenges, Hilo invites participants to lower the set temperature of their thermostats. The way challenges work is simple: If you participate automatically in all the Hilo challenges, there are no adjustments you need to make—we’ll send you a notification about the challenge the preceding day and that’s it! All that’s left is for you to limit your energy consumption during the challenge so you can earn the maximum cash reward. For more information about challenges, please see: here

How do I earn rewards?

Hilo challenges pay! During the cold weather season, we offer up to 30 energy reduction challenges. If you succeed, you’ll earn a cash reward. The reward calculation is simple: Accept the automatic actions suggested by Hilo and earn a reward for every kilowatt-hour (kWh) of energy you do not consume. So the less energy you consume, the more you earn. For more information on how the calculation is made, visit: here

How is my reference consumption calculated?

Your reference consumption is a forecast of the energy you would consume during the reduction phase, if there hasn’t been a challenge.

Hilo calculates your reference consumption based on your average consumption in the preceding days. All these calculations are made automatically.

  • First we select the most recent five days that are of the same type (excluding those in which there was a challenge). For example, if it’s for a weekday challenge, your consumption over the last five weekdays will be used.
  • To make this average as representative as possible, we exclude extreme data, meaning the day with the lowest consumption and the day with the highest consumption. The final calculation therefore takes into consideration the average of three out of the five selected days.
  • On the day of the challenge, this average is adjusted to reflect the effect of the outdoor air temperature on your consumption. 

Things that affect your reference consumption 

Your consumption follows a particular profile based on a number of factors that lie outside of Hilo’s responsibility, such as:

  • consumption habits
  • type of home (home size, number of floors, type of building, number of walls exposed to the exterior)
  • whether or not you own an electric vehicle
  • the area you live in
  • your lifestyle
  • the amount of time you are outside of your home
When are the rewards paid out?

The rewards you earn will be given to you via Interac transfer once the challenge season is over. You will receive an email confirming the total amount of your rewards and detailed instructions on how to securely accept the transfer using a secret answer. Within 5 business days, you will receive a second email from which you can accept the transfer and deposit your rewards to the account of your choice.

Make sure you write the secret answer correctly. After three failed attempts, the transfer will be canceled. We will make a new transfer within 5 business days.

What devices are compatible with the Hilo app?

To access the Hilo solution, you absolutely must have Hilo thermostats. Otherwise, any connected devices (switches, wall outlets, bulbs, etc.) that operate using the ZigBee protocol will be compatible with our solution and can be among the devices controlled through our application. That said, note that these devices will be excluded from Hilo challenges and will not be covered by our customer service guarantees.
