Time-of-Use Rates

The Ontario Energy Board has announced new electricity prices in effect for your consumption between May 1, 2018 and April 30, 2019.

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.
