Time-of-Use Rates

As of midnight on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, households, farms and small businesses who pay time-of-use electricity rates will be charged off-peak rates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Government of Ontario intends this temporary emergency relief will be in effect for 45 days to support households and businesses impacted by the global COVID-19 outbreak.


Time-of-use rates (TOU) paid by residential and small business customers include the global adjustment charge. The Ontario Energy Board sets time-of-use rates.


Effective November 1, 2019 the current TOU off-peak rate is 10.1 cents/kWh.
