On January 1, 2017, your electricity costs will go down 8%. The Ontario government is reducing electricity costs by rebating an amount equal to the provincial portion of the HST on your monthly hydro bill. That’s an 8% rebate for Ontario families, and on average will mean $130 more in your pocket each year.
This is part of Ontario’s plan to help people with the costs of everyday living by reducing electricity costs. Across Ontario, about five million residential consumers, farms and small businesses will benefit from this rebate.
Grimsby Power has until July 1, 2017 to implement these savings onto your bill. Applicable savings will be retroactive to electricity used on or after January 1, 2017.
