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.
