Support for customers during the province-wide shutdown
The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) has extended the current fixed Regulated Price Plan (RPP) price of 8.5 cents per kilowatt hour until February 22, 2021. Until the end of the day on February 22, 2021, all RPP consumers, whether they are on time-of-use (TOU) or tiered pricing, will continue to pay the fixed price of 8.5 cents per kilowatt hour for all the electricity they consume, regardless of the time of day or the total volume consumed.
The off-peak rate came into effect January 1, 2021 for a 28-day period, providing families, farms and small businesses with immediate electricity rate relief. The government is now extending this rate relief for an additional 12 days, for a total of 40 days. The off-peak price will continue to be automatically applied to bills of all residential, small business, and farm customers who pay regulated rates set by the Ontario Energy Board and get a bill from a utility.
The price change will happen automatically. No customer action is required. For more information, click here.
