Current Electricity Prices

As of November 1, 2020, residential and small business customers have a choice between two price plans: Time-of-Use or Tiered. For more information on each plan, or to switch plans, visit Customer Choice.

The winter Time-of-Use (TOU) hours and the winter Tier threshold for residential customers are effective November 1, 2021.

The Government is decreasing the Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) from 18.9% to 17% effective November 1, 2021. The prices here do not include other lines on your bill, like delivery.

If you have a contract with an electricity retailer, you pay the price agreed upon in their contract, not the price set by the OEB.
