Queen’s Park extends off-peak electricity rates until February 22

Will be automatically applied to electricity bills

Queen’s Park has extended the 24/7 off-peak electricity rate until February 22 as we continue to work our way out of the COVID Stay at Home order.

“We know staying at home means using more electricity during the day when electricity prices are higher, that’s why we are once again extending the off-peak electricity rate to provide households, small businesses and farms with stable and predictable electricity bills when they need it most,” said Greg Rickford, Minister of Energy, Northern Development and Mines, Minister of Indigenous Affairs. “We thank Ontarians for continuing to follow regional Stay-at-Home orders to help stop the spread of COVID-19.”

The all-day off-peak rate, which came into effect January 1, was to have been lifted today. It will be automatically applied to electricity bills of all residential, small business, and farm customers who pay regulated rates set by the Ontario Energy Board and get a bill from a utility.
