Consumer Alert: Beware of rebate scams pretending to be from or endorsed by the Ontario Energy Board

The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) has received complaints from consumers about emails that have been made to appear to be from, endorsed by or affiliated with the OEB on how to qualify or apply for government energy rebates related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The emails typically include a link to an “application form” for these rebates that requires the consumer to schedule a home energy assessment.

Friday, June 25, 2021

These emails are not from or in any way endorsed by the OEB. The OEB will not email you or call you about energy rebates unless you have reached out to us first. 

If you receive an email promoting energy rebates, even if it includes the OEB’s name or logo, please be careful.  

Beware in particular of emails that are sent from @energyassistanceprogram and that refer to the “Energy Assistance Program” or the “Assistance Program”. That entity is not affiliated with or endorsed by the OEB. Some emails include links to an energyassistanceprogram.org website. This is not an OEB website. We are also aware of emails that are sent from @ontariogreensavings.com that refer to “Ontario Green Savings” and that link to the energyassistanceprogram.org website.

There are Government of Ontario and OEB programs available to help customers with their energy bills. Please visit the OEB’s website at oeb.ca/billhelp for information about the COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program (CEAP), the Ontario Electricity Support Program (OESP) and the Low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP).

No energy assessment, audit, inspection or home visit is needed in order to qualify or apply for any of these programs, nor do you need to purchase any goods or other services from any company. Beware of emails from any source that state or imply that these are needed in order to access CEAP, OESP or LEAP, or that state or imply that you can apply for these programs through their website.  

Consumer Tips:

  • If a company claims that an energy assessment or home inspection is required to apply or qualify for CEAP, OESP or LEAP, this is false.
  • You should be cautious about sharing your personal information or utility account information with anyone.
  • Know who you are dealing with. If someone calls you, ask for the name of the person you are speaking with, the company they represent and their telephone number.
  • If you are concerned about any suspicious communications, you can contact us at publicinformation@oeb.caor 1-877-632-2727 (toll-free within Ontario). You can also contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre toll-free at 1-888-495-8501.

Does your utility bill seem higher than usual?

No one likes paying electricity and water bills—so when a monthly bill seems higher than usual, we understand your concern. Here are some things to keep in mind when reviewing your utility bill.

 

The COVID-19 effect

On March 24, 2020, residential, farm and small business customers began paying 10.1¢/kWh—or the Off-Peak rate—under the OEB’s Regulated Price Plan (RPP). This temporary COVID-19 relief measure was put in place by the Government of Ontario, and was later extended to May 31, 2020. The rate applied regardless of the time the electricity was consumed.

 

On June 1, the Government of Ontario changed the rate for residential, farm and small business customers to 12.8¢/kWh—resulting in a 27% difference between May and June bills.

 

The impact of weather

July and August this year were hot, humid and dry. When the weather is hot, the demand for electricity rises—due to increased fan and air conditioner use. The demand for water also increases as people tend to do laundry more often, and water plants, gardens and lawns with greater frequency.

 

Count the days

The number of days reflected on your utility bill can range from 25 to 35 days, depending on the calendar, and the impact of statutory holidays. If you’re comparing invoices from month to month, be sure to note the number of days, and the usage shown for each month. You’ll find the following pieces of information on every invoice:

 

  • Current read date (when your meter was read for this bill)
  • Previous read date (when your meter was read for your previous bill)
  • The usage for the period

 

Estimated water usage

In August, all water bills were estimated. Please rest assured that meter readings will be obtained in September and the next water invoice will show actual consumption over the period. 

Billing change

A small group of Tillsonburg residents received a two-month water billing last month as a result of internal process changes. If you were affected, your next bill will show only one month.


We’re here for you

We trust this information is helpful to you as you review your bill and manage your future electricity and water consumption. If you have questions, or need further clarification regarding your account, please call the Tillsonburg Customer Service Centre at 519.688.3009, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.
