Tiered Pricing

About 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.

Residential and Small Business customers can submit a request to switch from Time-of-Use Pricing to Tiered Pricing. 

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.
