Commercial Electricity Rates

COVID-19 Recovery Rate, starting 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, to support Ontarians as we restart the economy. Households, farms and small businesses who pay time-of-use electricity rates will be charged this fixed rate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, starting 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.

*The consumption used for these rates is subject to an Adjustment Factor. When electricity is delivered over a power line, it is normal for a small amount of power to be consumed or lost as heat. Equipment such as wires and transformers consume power before it gets to your home or business. The adjustment factor accounts for these losses. This charge is included in the Delivery portion of the bill. 

** Monthly Administration charge applies to non-retailer affiliated customers only. ***For eligible customers, the electricity price may be 11.9 cents per kilowatt hour for the first 750 kilowatt hours and 13.9 cents per kilowatt hour for any additional consumption. Of the 750 kWh consumption, 727 kWhs will be reflected in the Electricity portion of the bill and the remaining 23 kWhs, which accounts for the adjustment factor, will be reflected in the Delivery portion of the bill. For retailer customers, the price is as stated on the retailer contract. Rates may be subject to change from time to time.
