Ontario Electricity Support Program

There's help for low-income households

Do you qualify?

If you are a customer of an electricity utility and in a lower-income home, you may qualify for a reduction on your electricity bill through the Ontario Electricity Support Program (OESP).

You could receive a credit on your electricity bill.

Beginning in 2016, the OESP will reduce the cost of your household electricity by applying a monthly credit directly to your bill.

What support could you receive?

The amount of the credit you receive depends on two factors:

  • How many people live in your home and
  • Your combined household income

For example, a home with four people and an annual income of $37,000 will receive an on-bill credit of $34 each month.

If your home is electrically heated, or you rely on medical devices requiring a lot of electricity, OESP offers a higher level of assistance. First Nations and Métis will also qualify for a higher level of assistance.
