|Ontario Clean Energy Benefit|
The Ontario Clean Energy Benefit (OCEB) has been introduced by the Provincial Government to help electricity consumers with the increased costs of moving the province to clean sources of power and modernizing the energy infrastructure to ensure that the delivery of reliable power to homes and businesses continues in future years.
The Ontario Government, in late 2010, announced the introduction of the OCEB, a 10% rebate for all residential, seasonal, farm and small business (general service energy-billed with less than 50 kW demand) customers in the province. The rebate, appears as a separate line item on customer bills, is applied on the total charges (electricity, delivery, regulatory, debt retirement and taxes) for electricity consumed beginning on January 1, 2011 and will be in place until December 31, 2015.
Effective September 1, 2012 - The OCEB takes 10% off the cost of up to 3,000 kWh/month of electricity use. Some exceptions apply. Please see Ontario.ca/OCEB or call 1-888-668-4636.
All electricity customers in Ontario currently on the Regulated Price Plan (RPP) two-tiered and Time-of-Use (TOU) prices will receive the OCEB rebate, including customers who are enrolled with a retailer as well as those on spot market pricing as long as they are deemed to be RPP eligible.
