Burlington Hydro Launches E-Billing Campaign in Support of Joseph Brant Museum Transformation

Every new registration will see $5 donated to the New Museum Project

June 27, 2019

Burlington Hydro has launched a campaign to encourage its customers to sign up for paperless e-billing, through a service called VIEWmybill. Under the program, with every new customer registration, a $5 donation will be made by Burlington Hydro to the Burlington Museums Foundation to go towards the Joseph Brant Museum Transformation project. Burlington Hydro’s campaign is intended to help alleviate paper clutter and postage costs, and do it in a manner that brings benefit to the community.

“We’re thrilled to run a campaign that will encourage more customers to sign up for our paperless e-billing service while supporting the transformation of such an important cultural landmark in our City,” said Gerry Smallegange, President and CEO, Burlington Hydro Inc. “Not only do we believe strongly in supporting the cultural enrichment of our community, but we applaud the sustainable and energy efficient aspirations to attain a Platinum LEED* designation for the new building.”

The state-of-the-art building will add more than 12,000 square feet to the Brant House for new exhibit halls.  This will allow the Joseph Brant Museum to become a cultural destination and a place to host national exhibitions and the collection of artifacts.  Some attributes of the targeted Platinum LEED designation include: a geothermal heating and cooling system, efficient LED lighting, as well the Green Roof design.

“We are very proud of the design for the expanded Museum which will create an environmentally efficient facility as well as a source of pride in our community as the cultural cornerstone of Burlington’s downtown and waterfront,” said John Doyle Chair of the Burlington Museums Foundation. “Thank you Burlington Hydro for your support”

Joseph Brant, Thayendanegea, was a Mohawk warrior, leader of the Six Nations, a Christian missionary, a British military officer, and Burlington’s first citizen.

The Joseph Brant Museum project is a collaboration between the city, federal and provincial partners, the Burlington Museums Foundation and the community.
