The OEB’s extended Disconnection Ban will end on July 31, 2020

On March 19, 2020, the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) extended the ban on electricity disconnections for non-payment by three months to July 31, 2020, and broadened it to include small business customers.

New electricity pricing for TOU customers begins June 1, 2020

To support families, small businesses and farms while Ontario plans for the safe and gradual reopening of the province, the Government of Ontario has introduced a new fixed electricity price of 12.8 ¢/kWh for customers that are on time-of-use (TOU) prices. Starting June 1, 2020, that price applies to electricity used at all hours of the day, seven days a week. Having the same price apply at all hours of the day is a more predictable way to pay for power at a time when Ontarians continue to work and learn from home.
