Avoid Disconnection Between Owners
If an incoming customer, or their legal representative, does not request electricity service by the closing date of the property or unit, Alectra Utilities may disconnect the electrical service.
In addition to the inconvenience of having service disconnected, the incoming customer will be responsible for the associated reconnection charges.
If the premise or unit has been disconnected for more than six months, the owner of the property or unit must first have the property inspected and approved by the Electrical Safety Authority.
Alectra Utilities will not be responsible for any loss or damage resulting from the connection or disconnection of service to a premise or unit in accordance with Alectra Utilities Conditions of Service document.
Ontario Electricity Rebate
Effective November 1, 2019, the Government of Ontario introduced the new Ontario Electricity Rebate under the Ontario Rebate for Electricity Consumers Act, 2016. The Ontario Electricity Rebate provides eligible customers with a 31.8% rebate on their electricity bill.
The Ontario Electricity Rebate replaces the previous 8% Provincial Rebate and Fair Hydro Plan.
Please note that the Ontario Electricity Rebate has different eligibility requirements than the former 8% Provincial Rebate. This means that even if you were previously eligible, you may be required to re-declare eligibility to continue receiving financial assistance.
To apply for the rebate, complete and submit the Ontario Electricity Rebate Self-declaration Form.
