Ontario Electricity Rebate - November 1, 2019 changes to your electricity bill

Effective 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.
 
You may already be receiving the 31.8% rebate under transitional provisions specified in the ORECA. However, a self-declaration form for the 31.8% rebate is required to be submitted to ENWIN Utilities Ltd. (“ENWIN”) no later than January 31, 2020. Failure to submit a new self-declaration form before this date will result in your account ceasing to receive the 31.8% rebate on January 31, 2020. A new self-declaration form is required even if you had previously provided ENWIN with a self-declaration form for the prior 8% rebate.
 
If you are eligible to receive the 31.8% rebate, please return the completed self-declaration form to ENWIN no later than January 31, 2020 so that your account can continue to receive, or be registered to receive, the 31.8% rebate on your electricity bill.
 
If you are not eligible to receive the 31.8% rebate, you may still be able to receive the 31.8% rebate on a transitional basis until October 31, 2020, provided you were receiving the 8% rebate on October 22, 2019 and you complete and return the attached self-declaration form no later than January 31, 2020.
 
Please note that it is your responsibility to provide accurate information on the self-declaration form and failure to do so may lead to the requirement to reimburse the full amount of the 31.8% rebate to ENWIN. You may be subject to a third-party audit at any time to verify the information you provided.
 
ENWIN's self declaration form can be found here.

Setting Rates

In 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.
