For Immediate Release

PUC Applauds Ontario Government’s Decision to hold electricity prices to off-peak rates.

Sault Ste. Marie (January 28, 2021) The Ontario government has announced it is extending electricity rate relief for families, small businesses and farms to support those spending more time at home in response to the provincial Stay-at-Home Order. The government is continuing to hold electricity prices to the off-peak rate of 8.5 cents per kilowatt-hour until February 9, 2021. This lower rate is available 24 hours per day, seven days a week for Time-Of-Use and tiered customers.

The announcement means that PUC residential and small business customers will continue to see savings on upcoming electricity bills.

“PUC wants to acknowledge the leadership of the Ontario government, and its decision to keep electricity rates to 8.5 cents per kilowatt-hours while more people are required to stay at home,” said Robert Brewer, President & CEO, PUC Services Inc. “This decision will continue to help the thousands of families and customers in the North during this challenging time.”

No action is required by electricity consumers; this change will be applied automatically for everyone paying time-of-use rates, and customers will see the lower rate reflected on upcoming electricity bills.
