Ont. Electricity Rebate – Increase

Oct 30, 2020

The Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) is for most households, farms, long-term care homes and small businesses. Eligible consumers automatically receive the rebate, which appears on bills as a separate line item. Starting November 1, 2020, the OER will provide eligible consumers with a 33.2% rebate from the province on the subtotal of their electricity bill.

Multi-unit complex consumers that are currently receiving the OER under the grandfathering regulatory provisions will now continue to receive the rebate until April 30, 2021. Multi-unit complex consumers that have been grandfathered include those that were previously receiving the 8% Ontario Rebate for Electricity Consumers as of October 22, 2020 but are not eligible for the OER, if they met requirements to provide notice to their utility before February 1, 2020. The grandfathering period was previously slated to end on October 31, 2020.
