Ontario Electricity Rebate
The Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) is for most households, farms, long-term care homes and small businesses. Eligible consumers automatically receive the rebate, which appears on bills as a separate line item.
Starting November 1, 2021, the OER will provide eligible consumers with an 17% rebate from the province on the subtotal of their electricity bill.
Consumers that are currently receiving the OER under the grandfathering regulatory provisions will continue to receive the rebate until October 31, 2022. When the OER was introduced, a grandfathering period was also put in place for consumers that were previously receiving the 8% rebate as of October 22, 2019, if they met prescribed requirements to provide notice to their electricity vendor before February 1, 2021. The grandfathering period was scheduled to end on April 30, 2021.
For questions about eligibility, please contact your electricity distribution company or the Ontario Energy Board.
