Simplify your life
With Time-of-Use (TOU) pricing, the rates for electricity vary by time of day, day of week (weekdays versus weekend), and season (winter or summer). Shifting electricity consumption to evenings or weekends will change the price you are charged per kilowatt hour (kWh) to the lowest rate which is off-peak. Take advantage of our tips and tools and Hydro Ottawa's 65 ways to better manage your electricity consumption.
If you need help managing your energy costs, contact us. We can look into payment options or refer you to a financial assistance program. If you currently receive assistance from OESP, you must re-apply for the benefit. Existing customers moving within Hydro Ottawa’s territory that currently receive assistance from OESP must re-apply for the benefit.
If you are planting a large tree, installing a fence, building a deck or any other work that requires digging, please call ‘call or click’ at least five business days before you dig.
