The Ontario Energy Board has announced new electricity prices effective November 1, 2015.

Other changes to your bill are coming on January 1, 2016. Learn more.


Time-of-Use (TOU) rates work together with your smart meter. With TOU rates, you pay according to the time of day you use electricity. So it’s important to manage how much electricity you use and when you use it.

TOU winter hours

November 1, 2015 to May 1, 2016

In winter, less daylight means electricity use peaks twice: once in the morning when people wake up and turn on their lights and appliances, then again when people get home from work. There are two sets of on-peak hours to reflect this.


Please note: the red and yellow hours change from winter to summer. Summer hours start May 1.
