A delivery rate is the price you pay to have your electricity delivered to your seasonal residence. If you have a second home such as a  cottage, chalets or camp area that is serviced by Hydro One you are a Seasonal customer.

If you're not quite sure if your home classifies as seasonal check to see if it meets the
criteria of a year-round residential home. Or, find out from your bill - not sure where to look? View and understand where to find out on your bill.  

Check out the chart below to see how the delivery rates factor into your bill.*

Adjustment Factor



*Delivery rates are effective as of January 1, 2017.

**An adjustment for line losses is included under the Delivery line for most customers. Customers paying the spot market price will have this adjustment included under the Electricity line. It is calculated as follows: {adjusted use in kWh x (RPP prices/spot price/retail contract price)} – {metered use in kWh x RPP prices/spot price/retail contract price)} = line loss adjustment.

***This charge will be collected on behalf of the IESO until October 31, 2018.​

What Does Metered and Adjusted Mean?

When we apply metered usage we look at the actual amount of electricity you used. It is measured by your meter in kWh.

When we apply adjusted usage it reflects the losses that occur
when electricity is delivered over power lines. It is calculated by multiplying your metered use by an OEB-approved adjustment factor. This adjustment factor varies by service type.
