Notice To Customers

Posted March 19th, 2021

Grimsby Power was made aware of a ransomware attack perpetrated against one of its third-party contractors, which contractor is responsible for printing bills to our customers. 

Based upon information received to date, and given the nature of ransomware attacks (which generally operate by locking data; not downloading or removing it from a server), we have no reason to suspect that personal information of our customers was accessed or stolen.  

In the unlikely event that a third party improperly accessed our customers’ personal information, the nature of the personal information accessed would be limited to the specific information appearing on your hydro bill.  In some instances, the information may have also included an email address, if a customer was a subscriber for e-billing services.

This cyber event was not directed at Grimsby Power’s information technology systems and we can confirm that no data other than that described above would be vulnerable to access.  For avoidance of any doubt, we can confirm with certainty that no banking or other sensitive information was accessed, as the contractor housed no such information, nor did they have access to it on our systems.

While we are confident that there is no risk of harm to any of our customers, out of an abundance of caution, we do ask customers to please be aware of any unusual notifications or online activity related to the personal data described above. 

If customers experience any issues or have any questions, please contact us at: Customer Service 905-945-5437 option 2.

Please note, as we work through this situation, you may notice your electricity bills are slightly delayed.

Reduction in Global Adjustment

Posted January 11th, 2021

Reduction in Global Adjustment

Starting January 1, 2021, a portion of renewable energy contract costs will be funded by the Ontario government instead of electricity customers. This will lower electricity bills for large and mid-sized commercial and industrial consumers who do not participate in the Regulated Price Plan (RPP) or receive the Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) by reducing Global Adjustment (GA) costs. Class A consumers could see savings of about 15 per cent on their bills, while non-RPP Class B consumers could see savings of about 16 per cent on their bills*. Actual savings will vary depending on customers’ location and electricity consumption. RPP customers who receive the OER, such as residential, small business and farm consumers, will receive an adjusted rebate percentage starting January 1, 2021, to keep the average residential bill flat compared to November 2020. For a temporary period of 28 days starting January 1, 2021, all RPP customers, including those paying both time-of-use and tiered rates, will also benefit from being billed at the off-peak rate for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. *In 2021, Class A and Class B consumers could see savings of about 11% and 12%, respectively, due to the Global Adjustment (GA) deferral repayment in effect for 12 months starting January 2021.
