OEB Sets New Summer Electricity Prices for Households and Small Businesses

Toronto, ON – April 14, 2016 – Today, the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) announced new time- of-use (TOU) electricity prices for households and small businesses starting May 1. The price is increasing by approximately $3.13 per month on the “Electricity” line, and about 2.5% on the total bill, for a household that consumes 750 kWh per month.
