Price break for electricity in Ontario has ended

Back to Time-Of-Use or Tiered pricing

The price break for electricity in Ontario has not been extended.

The all-day off-peak rate we’ve been paying since January 1 ended at midnight.

Electricity users have a choice between time-of-use or tiered pricing.

Time of use pricing is as follows:

Off-Peak – 8.5 cents/kWh – weekdays 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.; all-day weekend and holidays

Mid-Peak – 11.9 cents/kWh – weekdays 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

On-Peak – 17.6 cents kWh – weekdays 7 to 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Tiered pricing is as follows:

Residential – first 1,000 kWh/month – 10.1 cents/kWh
– above 1,000 kWh/month – 11.8 cents kWh

Non-residential – first 750 kWh/month – 10.1 cents kWh
– above 750 kWh/month – 11.8 cents kWh

The all-day off-peak rate was put in place due to more people working home during the recent Stay-at-Home order.
