With an Equal Monthly Payment Plan (EMPP), you can even out your payments over time. Your monthly payment amount will be based on your projected annual electricity use and the price of electricity.
Rather than being charged for electricity as you use it, you can make 12 equal monthly payments over the course of a year.
Once you have enrolled, your equal monthly payment will be automatically withdrawn from your bank account on the due date indicated on your bill. If you require a fixed date, you may request that the withdrawal occur on the 5th of every month.
To become an Equal Monthly Payment Plan customer, you can enroll online or by mail.
In order to register online, you will need to sign up for an online account. Once logged into your online account, you can find the enrollment page by hovering over “Billing” in the top menu and then clicking on “Pre-Authorized Payment”.
The Equal Monthly Payment Plan is only open to qualifying residential and small business customers who purchase their electricity commodity through Hydro Ottawa (Standard Supply Service). Customers under contract with an electricity retailer are not eligible.
As an Equal Monthly Payment Plan customer, you must read and accept the Terms and Conditions that are part of the Pre-Authorized Debits Agreement.
