Hydro One delivers electricity safely and reliably to homes and businesses in Ontario. Effective January 1, 2022, new delivery rates will be in place.




Hydro One's role in the electricity system'

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.


Why are delivery rates changing?

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.
