Price Plan & Ontario Electricity Rebate Declaration Form
Effective November 1, 2019, the Ontario government introduced the new Ontario Electricity Rebate, under the Ontario Rebate for Electricity Consumers Act, 2016
Residential, seasonal, and small business customers, as well as any customer who is using less than 250,000 kilowatt hours a year are by default billed the Regulated Price Plan Time-of-Use (RPP TOU) rates and are automatically eligible for the Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER).
Other commercial customers with a demand above 50 kilowatts and annual consumption above 250,000 kilowatt hours may be eligible to receive the Ontario Electricity Rebate if they meet at least one of the eligibility criteria located in Section B.
Effective May 01, 2023, in accordance with section 3.5 of the Ontario Energy Board’s Standard Supply Service Code, RPP TOU consumers now have the option of being charged tiered prices or ultra-low overnight time-of use prices. Consumers that have an interval meter also have the option of being charged the Hourly Ontario Energy Price (HOEP).
Your account will be adjusted upon receipt of this signed and completed Declaration Form.
