If you are a customer of an electric utility (Hydro One) and in a lower income home, you may qualify for a reduction on your electricity bill through the Ontario Electricity Support Program (OESP). It’s also available to customers of unit sub-meter providers and retail energy companies.
You must apply to the program.
Beginning in 2016, the OESP will reduce the cost of your household electricity by applying a monthly credit directly to your bill.
The amount of the credit depends on two factors:
- how many people live in the home and
- your combined household income.
For example, a home with 4 people and an annual income of $37,000 will receive an on-bill credit of $34 each month.
