The Doug Ford lead Progressive Conservatives have extended the help they have been providing families, businesses and farms. In a continuation of trying to provide relief the Ontario Government announced that they have extended the off-peak electricity rates until February 22, 2021.
The off-peak electricity rates are being held at 8.5 cents per kWh. The rate will be available for 24 hours per day, seven days a week for Time-Of-Use and tiered customers.
“We know staying at home means using more electricity during the day when electricity prices are higher, that’s why we are once again extending the off-peak electricity rate to provide households, small businesses and farms with stable and predictable electricity bills when they need it most,”Greg Rickford, Minister of Energy, Northern Development and Mines, Minister of Indigenous Affairs.
The off-peak rate came into effect January 1st, 2021 and has been providing relief for families, small businesses and farmers. By the time the extension is over the relief will have been provided for 54 days.
Families, small businesses and charitable organizations with overdue electricity and natural gas bills can also apply for support through the COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program (CEAP). By contacting your utility provider a residential customer can receive up to $750 to help cover their overdue electricity bill and natural gas bill, while small businesses and charities can receive up to $1500 for each bill.
The Ontario Minister of Energy, Northern Development and Mines Greg Rickford, also thanked Ontarians for continuing to follow the stay-at-fome orders installed to help stop the spread of covid-19.
