About TOU and Tiered Pricing under the RPP
RPP prices are set based on a forecast of how much it will cost to supply RPP customers with the electricity they are expected to use over the next 12 months. Any variance between forecast and actual costs, whether a surplus or shortfall, is factored into the next price-setting. Prices are going down due to a surplus that has accumulated.
TOU and Tiered prices are set so that both recover the same forecast average cost of supply for a typical customer.

If you’re a residential or small business customer, you can choose to switch between Time-of-Use (TOU) and Tiered prices:
– With TOU, the price you pay depends on when you use electricity.
– With Tiered prices, you can use a certain amount of electricity each month at a lower price. Once that limit is exceeded, a higher price applies.

Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER)
The Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) is an on-bill credit to eligible consumers including residential customers, small business and farms.
The Government of Ontario set the OER at 11.7% effective November 1, 2022 to ensure the average residential bill increase is held to about 2% annually.
