COVID-19 Recovery Rate, starting June 1, 2020 The Government of Ontario has introduced a COVID-19 Recovery Rate of 12.8 ¢ kWh for all time-of-use (TOU) electricity customers, to support Ontarians as we restart the economy. Households, farms and small businesses who pay time-of-use electricity rates will be charged this fixed rate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, starting June 1, 2020.

This rate will be automatically reflected on TOU customers' electricity bills for all three TOU periods, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is intended to be in place until October 31, 2020.
Atikokan Hydro Inc eBilling Afford Ability Fund COVID-19: Deferral of Global Adjustment (GA) charges Ontario is deferring a portion of Global Adjustment (GA) for industrial and commercial electricity consumers that do not participate in the Regulated Price Plan (RPP), starting from April 2020. The GA rate for smaller industrial and commercial consumers (i.e., Class B) has been set at $115 per megawatt-hour, which is roughly in line with the March 2020 value. Large industrial and commercial consumers (i.e., Class A) will receive the same percentage reduction in GA charges as Class B consumers.

The government intends to keep this relief in place through the end of June 2020, subject to necessary extensions and approvals to implement this initiative.

Industrial and commercial consumers will automatically see this relief reflected on their bills.
