Ontario Electricity Rebate

Effective November 1, 2019 the Ontario government introduced the new Ontario Electricity Rebate, under the Ontario Rebate for Electricity Consumers Act, 2016.  As of July 1, 2022, there will be new eligibility requirements for the OER. Your account must meet at least ONE of the eligibility criteria listed on the form

Who is eligible?

Residential and small business customers using less than 50kW will automatically receive the OER.

The following types of electricity accounts are eligible:

  • Low volume accounts (meaning the account has a demand for electricity of 50 kilowatts or less, or uses no more than 250,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year); this includes most single-family homes and many small businesses
  • Farms
  • Long-term care homes
  • Multi-unit complexes that are predominantly residential, such as condominium and apartment buildings
  • Common elements in multi-unit complexes that are predominantly residential (as of July 1, 2022)
  • Retirement residences (as of July 1, 2022)
  • Mobile home parks (as of July 1, 2022).

How to apply for the OER

Please complete and submit the OER Self-Declaration Form

Who is not eligible?

Certain types of large-volume multi-unit complexes will be ineligible for the new OER, including hospitals, universities, colleges and any multi-unit complexes that have fewer than 50% residential units (as provided for under regulation), such as a large commercial building.

Eligibility to receive the OER is defined under the Ontario Rebate for Electricity Consumers Act, 2016.
