Additional products may also be purchased at a discounted price, to help customers who are looking for an even greater level of savings.

OEB Sets New Summer Electricity Prices for Households and Small Businesses

Friday, April 24, 2015

April 20, 2015 - The OEB announced the new time-of-use (TOU) electricity prices for households and small businesses starting May 1, 2015. The average household using 800 kWh per month will see an increase of approximately $5.71 per month (about 4.6% on the total bill).  The OEB sites increased costs from Ontario Power Generation’s nuclear and hydro-electric power plants coupled with costs for new generation as drivers for the increase.

The increase represents a 2:1 ratio between on- and off-peak prices that will benefit customers who shift their usage to off-peak time periods.

There are only 5,400 of these meters reported in use in Ontario which is less than one per cent of the 4.8 million meters in Ontario.
