As Ontarians continue to work and learn from home, the OEB are extending the suspension of time-of-use price to provide consumers with greater stability and predictability with their electricity bills.

To extend this support responsibly, the OEB will introduce a fixed electricity price, known as the COVID-19 Recovery Rate, of 12.8 cents per kWh, which will be automatically applied to all time-of-use customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This fixed electricity price will be in place from June 1 – October 31, 2020.

The COVID-19 Recovery Rate of 12.8¢/kWh is based on the average cost of electricity, set by the Ontario Energy Board. This fixed rate will continue to suspend time-of-use prices in a fiscally responsible manner. By introducing this new fixed rate, consumers will have greater flexibility to use electricity when they need it without paying on-peak and mid-peak prices.

The majority of Lakeland Power’s residential and small business customers are billed based on time-of-use rates. The rate periods are different in the summer and winter months. With time-of-use rates, there is a financial incentive for you to conserve energy and to shift some consumption away from on-peak periods. There are three price periods:
