Message for Customers on Time-of-Use Pricing

In response to the outbreak of COVID-19, the Government of Ontario issued an Emergency Order under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act. As a result, starting on March 24, 2020 residential and small business customers on time-of-use (TOU) pricing will pay 10.1 ¢/kWh no matter what time of day the electricity is consumed. This means that TOU customers will be paying the “off-peak” price throughout the day as long as the Emergency Order remains in place. The Government has indicated that it intends to keep the 10.1 ¢/kWh pricing in place for 45 days.

The 10.1 ¢/kWh pricing applies automatically – no customer action is required. Some customers may receive a bill before their utility or unit sub-meter provider is able to implement the price change, in which case they will receive a credit on the following bill.

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:

Summer Weekdays

MAY 1st to OCTOBER 31st

The highest energy prices occur over the afternoon, when air-conditioning use is greatest.

Winter Weekdays

NOVEMBER 1st to APRIL 30th

There are two peak periods during the winter months: in the early morning and in the evening. During these times, increased space heating, lighting and appliance use is common.

Weekends and Holidays

These periods are off-peak, all year.

OFF-PEAK 10.1 ¢/kWh
MID-PEAK 10.1 ¢/kWh
ON-PEAK 10.1 ¢/kWh

The electricity charge of your bill is calculated using time-of-use rates which are determined by the Ontario Energy Board.
