Conditions of Service

Every electricity distributor in Ontario must have its own "Conditions of Service" document to communicate its operating practices, the types and level of service available to customers within its service area, and its connection policies. Toronto Hydro will provide advance public notice of any changes to its Conditions of Service.

Toronto Hydro's Conditions of Service and four reference documents are changing. These documents, along with a list of the proposed changes, are now available for review and comment until April 30, 2014.

The proposed timeline for implementation is May 2014.

If you would like to comment on the proposed changes, submit your comments to ConditionsofService@torontohydro.com, please clearly identify the paragraph, pages and sections you are referring to.
