Wasaga Distribution Inc. Supports Provincial Initiative by lowering Time of Use Rates to Off Peak

March 25, 2020

In response to the outbreak of COVID-19, the Government of Ontario issued an Emergency Order under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act. As a result, starting on March 24, 2020 residential and small business customers on time-of-use (TOU) pricing will pay 10.1 cents/kWh no matter what time of day the electricity is consumed. This means that TOU customers will be paying the “off peak” pricing throughout the day as long as the Emergency Order remains in place. The Government has indicated that it intends to keep the 10.1 cent/kWh pricing in place for 45 days.
