Ontario Fair Hydro Plan
September 6, 2017
Electricity bills will be lowered by 25 per cent on average for residential consumers.
Rate increases will be held to inflation for four years.
As many as half a million small businesses and farms will also benefit from this reduction.
Lower-income Ontarians and those living in eligible rural communities will receive even greater reductions, as much as a 40 to 50 per cent cut.
The benefit will vary for individual consumers depending on electricity usage and service territory. These measures include the eight per cent rebate introduced in January 2017 and build on previous initiatives to deliver broad-based relief on all electricity bills.
