Tiered Pricing

Under tiered pricing, customers are charged two rates for electricity: a lower rate for the electricity used up to a certain threshold; and a second, higher rate for all additional use. 

Tiered pricing rates are set by the Ontario Energy Board.

  • For Time-of-Use Pricing and Tiered Pricing, Alectra Utilities passes this cost through to you, without mark-up, and pays it directly to our suppliers.
  • Customers who have signed a contract with an energy retailer pay the price stated in their contract plus the Global Adjustment.

Beginning October 13, 2020, Residential and Small Business customers can submit a request to switch from Time-of-Use to Tiered Pricing for electricity usage after October 31, 2020. Use the Ontario Energy Board bill calculator to see what your total bill would look like with new, November 1, 2020, Time-of-Use and Tiered prices.

You can find more information on how to Choose Your Rate Option or on Time-of-Use Pricing to help you make an informed choice.
