Now that the former 8% hydro rebate and rate reduction will be replaced by the new Ontario Electricity Rebate, make sure you report on time to your local distribution company in order to receive the new Ontario Electricity Rebate.


If your condo consumes more than 250,000 kWh/year and over 50 kWh/day, you must notify your local distribution company by January 31, 2020 in order to be entitled to receive the Ontario Electricity Rebate beyond February 1, 2020.


If there are less than 50% residential units at your condo, you could qualify to receive an extension of time to report to your local distribution company up until November 1, 2020.
