The Ontario government has announced the Ontario Clean Energy Benefit will provide eligible customers a 10 per cent rebate on the total cost of electricity charges related to electricity consumption on their bills including HST, effective with electricity consumed January 1, 2011. This rebate will be in effect for five years until December 31, 2015.
The government estimates Ontarians will be faced with a 46 per cent increase in home electricity costs over the next five years to pay for much needed electricity system upgrades. The Ontario Clean Energy Benefit will help customers manage the rising cost of electricity.
Who is eligible?
Residential and seasonal customers are eligible for the rebate, as well as farm and small business customers as long as they do not use more than 250,000 kWh annually.
