Time-of-use holiday schedule

COVID-19 UPDATE - New electricity pricing for TOU customers in effect June 1

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. Effective 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.


Electricity used on weekends and holidays is charged the off-peak price. This page lists the holidays when off-peak time-of-use (TOU) prices are in effect.

Note: If a holiday falls on a weekend, the next weekday (that is not also a holiday) will have off-peak prices in effect all day.
