Effective November 1, 2019, the Government of Ontario introduced the new Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) under the Ontario Rebate for Electricity Consumers Act, 2016. The OER provides eligible customers with a 31.8% rebate on their electricity bill.
The OER replaces the previous 8% Provincial Rebate and Fair Hydro Plan.
Please note that the OER has different eligibility requirements than the former 8% Provincial Rebate. This means that even if you were previously eligible, you may be required to re-declare eligibility to continue receiving financial assistance.
To apply for the OER, complete and submit the OER Notice Form by January 31, 2020.
