We want to help you take charge of your electricity costs, and give you options that make life easier for you. That's why we've designed Advantage Power Pricing (APP), a new trial electricity pricing program that empowers customers to save on energy costs.
The APP-Enhanced and APP-Overnight plans will end as scheduled on May 31, 2019. As of June 1, 2019, customers on these plans will revert to standard Time-of-Use pricing and schedules. A final monthly report covering the billing period ending May 31 will be mailed in June or July, after which time there will be no further monthly reports.
Participating customers picked the program that fits their lifestyle, and they can reduce their costs — without sacrificing their comfort. APP program participants are part of a community that is helping to reduce the production of carbon-intensive electricity — it's a win for them and for the environment!
Originally launched May 1, 2015, the Advantage Power Pricing program was extended to run until May 31, 2019. It is a voluntary program, and customers can end their participation at any time by contacting our Customer Care Centre at 1-844-952-5291.
Program Announcements for APP Participants
To stay up-to-date with the Advantage Power Pricing program, please visit our APP Program Updates page.
With a convenient schedule that lets you reduce costs, APP-Dynamic features an On-peak period from 3:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. with a variable rate, and lower Off-peak rates than standard Time-of-Use pricing. A Critical Peak price period occurs for up to four hours on the days with the highest demand in each of the summer and winter seasons. In the summer of 2019, some customers will have six Critical Peak pricing events, while others will experience nine Critical Peak pricing events and fewer days with Medium On-peak and High On-peak pricing.
Advantage Power Pricing - Dynamic: Weekday price schedule
Ideal if you're a shift worker or have an electric vehicle, APP-Overnight gives you a window (12:00 a.m. - 6:00 a.m.) with an extra low rate for electricity. On-peak rates are slightly higher to compensate for this discount.
Advantage Power Pricing - Overnight: Weekday price schedule
The smart thermostat incentive, which offered a $75 bill credit when you registered your existing Nest or ecobee thermostat, is no longer available for participants in the Adavantage Power Pricing program.
During the Phase 4 Term, we will offer a limited number of APP-Dynamic participants free installation of an Energate thermostat, which automatically responds to pricing events and can be controlled remotely through a mobile app or web portal. Please visit our APP Technology page for more information.
This is one of a series of pilots under way across Ontario led by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) whose mandate is to promote a sustainable and efficient energy sector that provides consumers with reliable energy services at a reasonable cost. With the participation of utilities and their customers, the OEB’s goal with these pilots is to test different electricity price plans designed to give greater consumer control and help Ontario’s power system run more efficiently.
