On May 1, 2021, new Time-of-Use (TOU) and Tiered prices will come into effect for residential and small business customers under the Ontario Energy Board’s (OEB) Regulated Price Plan (RPP).
The summer TOU hours, as well as the summer Tier threshold for residential customers, are also effective May 1, 2021.
The Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) is for most households, farms, long-term care homes and small businesses. Eligible consumers automatically receive the rebate, which appears on bills as a separate line item.
Starting May 1, 2021, the OER will provide eligible consumers with an 18.9% rebate from the province on the subtotal of their electricity bill. This means the average residential bill will not go up compared to January 1, 2021.
