Who We Are The Power System Demand & Price Conservation Electricity Pricing in Ontario


Homeowners and certain designated consumers currently pay tiered prices under the Regulated Price Plan (RPP) set by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB).

The following rates and price thresholds apply to residential and low-volume business RPP customers during the winter months (Nov 1 to April 30):

Winter Regulated Price Plan Rates

Residential users
   8.3 ¢/kWh for the first 1,000 kWh in a month
   9.7 ¢/kWh for each additional kWh

Low-volume business users
   8.3 ¢/kWh for the first 750 kWh in a month*
   9.7 ¢/kWh for each additional kWh
    * The 750 kWh threshold for these customers does not change throughout the year.

The OEB is responsible for regulating electricity prices for low-volume household and small business consumers. It reviews these rates twice a year, to better reflect the true cost to produce electricity. More information about the RPP is available on the OEB website.


Households and low-volume customers paying RPP rates have the option to enter into a contracted rate plan through a retailer. Visit the OEB web site to learn about the conditions for leaving the Regulated Price Plan, and the associated costs or credits.
