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 Alectra Utilities (formerly Horizon Utilities) electricity bill.
