Time-of-Use (TOU) Prices
Time-of-Use rates are based upon specific times of the day and the days of the week when traditionally demand for electricity is at its highest or lowest. When the demand and generation costs for electricity are at their highest, the TOU rates will reflect “On-Peak” prices; when demand and generation costs are low, TOU rates will be lower. These rates are set by the Ontarian Energy Board.
If you purchase your electricity from any electricity retailer, the prices you pay will be different and will be stated in the contract you signed.
Regulated Price Plan (RPP) – Tiered Prices
Customers who purchase electricity from Lakefront Utilities Inc. who are not on Time-of-Use will be changed Regulated Price Plan. These rates are set by the Ontarion Energy Board.
If you purchase electricity from an electricity retailer, the prices you pay will be different and will be stated in the contract you signed.
The threshold that defines higher and lower electricity prices for residential Regulated Price Plan consumers is set at 600 kilowatt hours per month during the summer (May 1st to October 31st) and 1,000 kilowatt hours per month during the winter (November 1st to April 30th). This difference recognizes that consumers use more electricity for lighting and indoor activity in the winter and that some Ontarians are reliant on electricity for their heating source.
The threshold for non-residential RPP consumers remains at 750 kilowatt hours per month for all seasons.
The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) released its Regulated Price Plan Roadmap on November 16 2015. Over the past year the OEB has undertaken an initiative to understand whether the Regulated Price Plan (RPP) is meeting public policy objectives, whether improvements can be made, and to ensure that RPP customers are being appropriately served by the program. The goal of this review was to ensure that the RPP is able to meet the challenges of the future. The Report is available on the OEBs website.
