The Ontario government has recently revised the Ontario Rebate for Electricity Consumers Act, 2016 (O. Reg. 363/16. Historically, this rebate was captured through an 8% rebate, intended to offset the provincial portion of HST, along with a “Global Adjustment modifier” intended to reduce the monthly impact of the Global Adjustment. As of November 1st 2019, this rebate will be captured in a single line item on bills named the “Ontario Electricity Rebate.”
Changes to Eligibility Requirements and New Customer Notice Requirements
