Helping More Ontarians Save Money on Electricity
Our government is keeping more money in the pockets of families small business owners by increasing the on-bill Ontario Electricity Rebate Program from 11.7% to 19.3%.
We are also investing $50 million to expand the income eligibility thresholds for the Ontario Electricity Support Program by up to 35% making electricity more affordable for thousands of families across the province.
Updated thresholds will come into effect on March 1, 2024.
The Energy Affordability Program provides eligible participating households with personalized, free electricity-saving measures that can help them reduce their electricity bills. Customers can also access the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program and receive up to $600 in emergency assistance if they are behind on their electricity or natural gas bill and face having their service disconnected.
