Ontario Electricity Rebate - November 1, 2019 changes to your electricity billEffective November 1, 2019, the Government of Ontario has introduced a new 31.8% Ontario Electricity Rebate (the “31.8% rebate”) under the Ontario Rebate for Electricity Consumers Act, 2016 (the “ORECA”) on the electricity bills of residential, farm, small business and other eligible customers. This 31.8% rebate will begin to appear on electricity bills with November usage for eligible customers. This 31.8% rebate replaces the previous 8% Provincial Rebate (the “8% rebate”) under the ORECA.
Setting RatesIn Ontario, electricity rates are set by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB). Your bill includes charges for the electricity commodity (generation), transmission through high voltage systems (e.g. Hydro One), and distribution through local systems (e.g. ENWIN). The OEB must ensure that all rates are justified and reasonable. ENWIN is required to prove to the OEB that its rates are justified and reasonable through a rate application process. The current OEB-approved rates are listed below. More information on rates is available at the OEB website: www.ontarioenergyboard.ca.
