Electricity Rates

COVID-19 Recovery Rate effective June 1, 2020

The Government of Ontario has introduced a COVID-19 Recovery Rate of 12.8¢/kWh for all time-of-use (TOU) electricity customers. Households, farms and small businesses who pay TOU electricity rates will be charged this fixed rate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for electricity consumed starting on June 1, 2020.

This rate will be automatically reflected on TOU customers’ electricity bills for all three TOU periods, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is intended to be in place until October 31, 2020.

Visit the Ontario Energy Board website for more information

Electricity rates in Ontario are set by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB). Rates are calculated using a 12-month forecast that helps make pricing more stable, predictable and fair both for users and for generators.

Time-of-Use Prices

With Time-of-Use (TOU) pricing, the price of electricity depends on when you use it. There are three different prices for electricity: On-Peak, Mid-Peak and Off-Peak.

Quick Facts

  • The majority of households and small businesses in Ontario now pay time-of-use prices.
  • Time-of-use prices vary based on when electricity is being used. They encourage consumers to use electricity during lower-cost time periods.
  • Most Ontario households use about two-thirds of their power (64%) during off-peak hours.
  • These price changes do not affect the small number of consumers who have contracts with a company that sells electricity under contract.
