The Ontario government has reduced electricity costs for you by rebating an amount equal to the provincial portion of the HST on your bill. This means that electricity customers will save on average $130 a year.
The rebate is part of Ontario's plan to help people with the costs of every day living by reducing electricity costs. Across Ontario, about five million residential customers, farms, and small businesses will benefit.
All eligible Hydro One customers will receive the 8% rebate on their bills starting on January 1 this year.
You can see the rebate on the second page of your bill in the Your Electricity Charges section.
