The Government of Ontario introduced the OER under the Ontario Rebate for Electricity Consumers Act, 2016. The OER provides eligible customers with a 21.2% rebate on their electricity bill.
Note: The OER replaced the 8% Provincial Rebate and Fair Hydro Plan. The eligibility requirements for the OER are different from the eligibility requirements for the former 8% Provincial Rebate. Even if you were previously eligible, you’re required to re-declare eligibility under the new rules to continue receiving financial assistance.
To be eligible for the OER, you must meet at least one of the requirements listed below.
