The AffordAbility Fund

The Affordability Fund

The Government of Ontario established a $100 million AffordAbility Fund to assist electricity customers who do not qualify for low-income conservation programs. The AffordAbility Fund is funded by an independent trust set up by the Government of Ontario and offered to you by local electric utilities like PUC Distribution.

This program helps Ontarians lower their electricity use and costs at home over the long term, easing the burden of electricity bills.
