PROVINCIAL UPDATE: Support for Hydro Bills

Published January 6, 2021


To support people as they stay home during the Provincewide Shutdown, the government will hold electricity prices to the off-peak rate of 8.5 cents per kilowatt-hour for all time-of-use and tiered customers on a temporary basis starting January 1, 2021. This low rate will be available 24 hours per day, seven days a week for a 28-day period. The off-peak price will automatically be applied to bills of all residential, small business, and farm customers who pay regulated rates. https://news.ontario.ca/en/release/59803/safer-at-home-programs-provide-relief-to-ontario-families
