2022 Delivery Rates
We energize life for customers and communities across Ontario by delivering electricity safely and reliably to homes and businesses in Ontario. The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) approved 2022 delivery rates that are reflected on the Delivery line on your bill. The new rates will apply to your usage starting on January 1, 2022.
Delivery rates are increasing to reflect the higher cost for transmitting electricity over the high voltage system.
Customers will see a small increase to their delivery rates. The amount your bill will change depends on your rate class and how much electricity you use.
The table below shows the bill impacts for a typical/average customer. Click here to see where rate class is shown on your bill.

General Service Energy
Delivery charges are made up of the following items:
Distribution rates are designed to recover our costs for the poles, wires, meters, stations that are used to deliver electricity to your home or business, as well as the costs related to meter reading, billing, and customer service. Distribution rates include:
a monthly service charge that does not change no matter how much electricity you use, and
a distribution volumetric rate that varies based on how much electricity you use (this doesn’t apply to residential customers).
A low voltage service rate that varies based on how much electricity you use.
A smart meter entity charge of $0.57 per month that we collect on behalf of the IESO. This charge is effective until December 31, 2022 and only applies to residential and general service energy-billed customers.
Cost or credit adjustments (also known as rate riders) – one-time adjustments to reconcile for costs or surpluses incurred while providing electricity to customers.
Transmission rates recover the costs to operate and maintain the high-voltage transmission system and vary based on how much electricity you use.
An adjustment for line losses.
Customers will see this increase on their bill on or after January 7, 2022.
