Types of Electricity Rates

For customers that buy electricity from their utility, there are two different types of rates. The Ontario Energy Board sets both of these rates twice per year in May and November and adjust as required.

The RPP prices were lowered on December 15, 2020, for rates effective January 1, 2021, to reflect a significant change in the cost of supplying electricity to RPP customers. Specifically, a portion of renewable energy contract costs currently funded by electricity ratepayers will now be funded by the Ontario Government. This initiative was announced as part of the 2020 Ontario Budget, and a new regulation has been made to support the initiative.
