Time-of-Use Rates

The price that most residential consumers in Ontario pay for their electricity depends on when they use it. Under time-of-use pricing, consumers pay a lower price for electricity when it is least  expensive — and higher when electricity costs more to produce. This rate structure gives customers the opportunity to lower electricity costs by shifting usage off-peak times of the day or week.
