Hydro use now on off-peak rate for next 45 days

While many are at home riding out the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ontario government is suspending time-of-use electricity rates – holding electricity prices to the off-peak rate of 10.1 cents-per-kilowatt-hour – for the next 45 days.

Premier Doug Ford announced today the reduced price will be available 24 hours per day, seven days a week to residential, small business and farm customers – saving some 50 per cent compared to on-peak rates.

The discount will be applied automatically to electricity bills without the need for customers to fill out an application form.

The Ontario Energy Board has also extended the winter ban on electricity disconnections for residential and low-volume small business customers to July 31 (from April 30).
