1 The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) sets the RPP rates. RPP prices are reviewed and adjusted twice a year in the spring (May 1) and in the fall (November 1). The vast majority of Hydro Ottawa customers pay Time-of-Use rates. If you are a Tiered price customer, please visit ontarioenergyboard.ca for more information.
2 The Delivery Line Loss Charge calculation is: (Adjusted Consumption - Unadjusted Consumption) x current month’s energy rate per kWh.
3 For Standard Supply Service customers (not purchasing the electricity commodity from an electricity retailer), a monthly administration fee of $0.25 is added to the regulatory charge to recover a portion of the cost of systems required for the market.
4 For customers of the former Casselman Hydro, this rate is $0.007/kWh as Casselman Hydro did not own any generating plants.
