Residential and small commercial customers can choose the Electricity Price Plan that best meets your needs - either Time of Use Rates or Tiered Rates.

About Time of Use Rates

Under Time of Use Rates, the price you pay for electricity depends on the time of day and day of week that you use it. 

Time-of-Use rates are set by the Ontario Energy Board and reviewed twice a year to coincide with the start of Winter (November 1 to April 30) and the Summer (May 1 to October 31). 

Ontario Energy Board Time-of-Use electricity rates for electricity used between May 1 and October 31, 2021 will be on-peak rate of 17.0¢/kWh, 11.3¢/kWh mid-peak and off-peak rate of 8.2¢/kWh.   

Time-of-Use divides the day into three rate periods: off-peak, mid-peak and on-peak. The rate you pay for electricity in each of these periods, reflects the costs associated with generating electricity at that time of day. By shifting some of your activities from on-peak to off-peak periods - after 7 pm on weekdays, all weekend long and on statutory holidays - you will pay a lower price for electricity.
