How to Pay 

If you make a payment by cheque, online banking or at the bank, please note that it can take 3-5 business days to process. 

To ensure prompt receipt of payment, you can make a payment through Canada Post MoneyGram, Western Union Quick Collect or call Paymentus at 1-877-507-5093 to pay by credit card. Please note that there are fees associated with these services.
If we visit your property to install a device to limit the flow of electricity, which severely restricts the number of electrical appliances that you can use at the same time, only credit card payment will be accepted at that time.

You May Hear From Us
Hydro One strives to work closely with our customers to ensure their accounts are kept up-to-date. Customers with over due payments will receive an automated phone call from Hydro One encouraging them to contact us to discuss their account.  
If you receive an automated call or a payment reminder letter, please call us and speak directly to a call center agent. Our agents will work with you to determine if you qualify for an installment plan and are able to provide information on other programs designed to help you manage your bill and to keep your electricity costs down.  

How We Reach Out to Customers

Disconnection is always the last resort. Customers will always be reminded of an overdue account and given the opportunity to contact us to discuss an installment plan. Contact our call center and speak to an agent about what options are available for you. Please note that due to updates in technology, our newest meters have the function to remotely disconnect and reconnect customers without an in-person connection visit.

Out of concern for the safety of our customers, we do not disconnect residential customers during the winter months or periods of extreme cold.
