8% Provincial Rebate

Beginning January 1, 2017, residential customers are eligible for an 8% Provincial Rebate on their electricity bill. The rebate is equal to the provincial portion of the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST).

The savings for a typical residential customer using about 800 kWh per month are approximately $130 annually or $11 each month.

Did you know? Residential customers automatically qualify for the 8% Provincial Rebate and don’t need to sign up to receive the credit. It will simply appear on your bill each month.

Business, institutional and industrial customers may qualify for the 8% Provincial Rebate. Businesses with a demand of less than 50 kilowatts automatically qualify.

Eligibility to receive the rebate is defined under the Ontario Rebate for Electricity Consumers Act, 2016.
