Electricity Rate Update
October 15th, 2020
The Ontario Energy Board has decided to resume time of use rates as well as raise electricity rates 2%. This will be effective November 1st. There is also the introduction of time of use customers having the option to go to a tiered rate plan. Both rates have benefits depending on how and when your business operates. Please get in touch with me to figure out which rate will work best for you.
