Prices effective June 1, 2020. (Prices are subject to change November 1, 2020).
The Provincial Government has introduced a new "COVID-19 Recovery Rate" for Ontario electricity customers on Time-of-Use pricing. The new fixed electricity price of 12.8 ¢/kWh is for all Time-of-Use customers - households, farms and small businesses.
Starting June 1, 2020 this price of 12.8 ¢/kWh will apply to all electricity used at all hours of the day, seven days a week. This is in effect until October 31, 2020. Also, Winter Time-of-Use time periods will remain in effect until October 31, 2020.
Time-of-Use rates are based upon specific times of the day and the days of the week when traditionally demand for electricity is at its highest or lowest. When the demand and generation costs for electricity are at their highest, the TOU rates will reflect "On-Peak" prices; when demand and generation costs are low, TOU rates will be lower. These rates are set by the Ontario Energy Board.
If you purchase your electricity from an electricity retailer, the prices you pay will be different and will be stated in the contract you signed.
Customers who purchase electricity from Wellington North Power who are not on Time-of-Use will be charged using Regulated Price Plan. These rates are set by the Ontario Energy Board.
If you purchase electricity from an electricity retailer, the prices you pay will be different and will be stated in the contract you signed.
The threshold that defines higher and lower electricity prices for residential Regulated Price Plan consumers is set at 600 kilowatt hours per month during the summer (May 1st to October 31st) and 1,000 kilowatt hours per month during the winter (November 1st to April 30th). This difference recognizes that consumers use more electricity for lighting and indoor activity in the winter and that some Ontarians are reliant on electricity for their heating source.
The threshold for non-residential RPP consumers remains at 750 kilowatt hours per month for all seasons.
