Time-of-Use Rates


Changes to time-of-use (TOU) pricing

As Ontarians continue to work and learn from home, the Government of Ontario is extending the suspension of TOU rates to provide consumers with greater stability and predictability with their electricity bills. A fixed electricity price, known as the COVID-19 Recovery Rate, of 12.8 cents per kWh, will be automatically applied to all TOU customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This fixed electricity price will be in place from June 1 to October 31, 2020.

Starting November 1, 2020, customers will be able to choose a plan that best suits their household and lifestyle with the option of either TOU electricity rates or tiered pricing, which will provide a set rate for electricity up to a certain level of consumption. Learn more.

Time-of-use rates (TOU) paid by residential and small business customers include the global adjustment charge.

Historical TOU prices can be found on the OEB website.
