* Customers with a monthly billing demand of 50 kW or more should refer to our Business Rates brochure for more information.
** The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) sets the RPP rates. RPP prices are reviewed and adjusted twice a year in the summer (May 1) and in the winter (Nov. 1). For RPP Tiered rates, the price threshold - the amount of electricity that is charged at the lower price - is set at 750 kWh for the entire year.
*** For non RPP customers only, to dispose of the Global Adjustment account balance.
**** 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.
***** For customers of the former Casselman Hydro, this rate is $0.007/kWh as Casselman Hydro did not own any generating plants.
