Electricity Rate Changes for Residential and Small Business Customers Effective January 1, 2021

From January 1, 2021 through January 28, 2021, the government of Ontario is implementing a discounted RPP rate for residential and small business customers of 8.5 cents / kWh. This rate will be in place all day, every day, regardless of whether your rate plan is Tiered or Time-of-Use.

This rate will be applied automatically, and it will not affect your rate option (Tiered or TOU) once the discounted rate expires; you are not required to do anything.

Rate Changes for Class A and B (Large commercial and industrial Customers) Effective January 1, 2021

  • As of January 1, 2021, the government of Ontario will begin funding a portion of renewable energy contract costs, resulting in electricity cost relief
  • As of January 1, 2021, the government of Ontario will begin recovering Global adjustment payments which were deferred between April and June 2020

In 2021, Class A and non-RPP Class B customers could see net savings of 11-12% on their bills as a result of these two initiatives (actual savings will depend on location and consumption).
