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.

The Ontario Energy Board has announced new electricity prices effective November 1, 2014.

TOU winter hours

November 1, 2014 to April 30, 2015


The winter gives us two peak periods. This is because our days are shorter and in the morning when most people get up, lights and appliances are turned on and heating systems are turned up. The pattern repeats later in the day around the dinner hour.

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