The choice is yours

Residential and small business customers now have the opportunity to choose between two electricity rate plans: TOU and tiered pricing.

COVID-19 Updates

With growing concern around the COVID-19 virus, Hydro Ottawa is taking active measures to support our customers.

Regulated Price Plan (RPP) & Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER)

Effective May 1, 2021, electricity rates change for Regulated Price Plan (RPP) customers. Most residential and small business customers are on the RPP. The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) regulates the province’s energy sector and sets these rates. To learn more, visit the Ontario Energy Board’s electricity rates page.

The Ontario Government is also changing the Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) percentage effective May 1, 2021.
