Electricity Pricing: Distribution Rate Changes for Seasonal Customers
Hydro One customers will have received their 2016 bills that reflect the change to “all-fixed” distribution rates, with an eight-year phase in starting January 2016.
For seasonal customers, this will change the monthly amount of the distribution Charge each year from 2017 to 2023 as follows:
- Usage: 50kWh/mo + $3.75/mo
- Usage: 200 kWh/mo + $1.94/mo
- Usage: 400 kWh/mo – $0,47/mo
- Usage: 700 kWh/mo – $4.10/mo
- Usage 1100 kWh/mo – $9.93/mo
According to the Ontario Energy Board (OEB), this would be the first step of the OEB’s direction to eliminate the seasonal customer class by aligning rates for seasonal and other year-round residential customer classes.
