The Ontario 8% Provincial Rebate came into effect January 1, 2017.
Ontario’s government is reducing electricity costs by rebating an amount equal to the provincial portion of the HST on your monthly hydro bill. That’s an 8% rebate for Ontario families, and on average will mean $130 more in your pocket each year.
Residential consumers and small businesses will automatically receive this rebate on their Horizon Utilities electricity bill.
Farms and medium to large commercial customers on spot market pricing may also be eligible to receive the 8% rebate. Eligibility criteria is outlined on the self-declaration form.
If eligible, Horizon Utilities Corporation will implement these savings onto your bill retroactvely to January 1, 2017.
