The new Ontario Electricity Support Program is now accepting applications and will help make electricity more affordable for low-income households. The OESP was developed by the Ontario Energy Board and is designed to lower electricity bills through an on-bill credit. Starting January 1, 2016, eligible consumers will receive an on-bill credit of between $30 and $50 a month.
To qualify, applicants must receive an electricity bill and meet certain household income thresholds. Consumers are encouraged to apply online at OntarioElectricitySupport.ca or to call 1-855-831-8151 for more information and to be connected with a local intake agency for application assistance. InnPower customers can also contact InnPower’s Customer Service Department for more information and application assistance at 705-431-4321.
On December 7, 2015 InnPower will be hosting a public information session in the West Wing of the Wheel in Sandycove Acres from 1:00 - 4:00 pm on the OESP and providing customers support in applying.
