Tiered Pricing Plan

Tiered Pricing Graphic

With Tiered prices, you can use a certain amount of electricity each month at a lower price. Once that limit (called a threshold) is exceeded, a higher price applies. The threshold changes with the season to reflect changing usage patterns – for example, there are fewer hours of daylight in the winter and some customers use electric heating. 

In the winter period (November 1 – April 30), the Tier threshold for residential customers is 1,000 kWh, so that households can use more power at the lower price. In the summer period (May 1 – October 31), the Tier threshold for residential customers is 600 kWh. The Tier threshold for small business customers is 750 kWh all year round.

Tiered prices give you the flexibility to use electricity at any time of day at the same price, although that price will change if you exceed the threshold during the month.

On January 1, 2021, Tiered prices are changing. To support customers remaining at home during the provincial shutdown, the Ontario government has introduced a flat rate of 8.5 ¢/kWh. This rate is in effect for Tiered customers until January 28, 2021
