How does Time Of Use work?

TOU Periods:
– Off-peak, this is when the demand for electricity in Ontario is at its lowest, as is the price.
– Mid-peak, demand during this period is higher though steady.
– On-peak, these are the busiest times of the day and pricing reflects that.

What are the Summer/Winter TOU periods?

Consumption patterns — supply and demand — change during the wintertime therefore the Winter Time-Of-Use periods & rates reflect that change.

Why do the rates vary?

As Ontarians begin their days, at home or at work, all systems are go go go! These high demand periods can exhaust the baseload capabilities and so the province turns to alternate natural gas- fired generation or green energy sources, which generally more expensive.

HOEP Explained.

Business that use less than 300,000 kilowatt-hours per year, they pay three rates and are used to seeing your usage broken out into peak, mid-peak and off-peak time-of-use types, with different prices for each peak. This is called the Regulated Price Plan, or RPP, which is administered by your local utility, and changed semi-annually. Here’s what you’re paying right now. Chances are, like most businesses, you are open during regular business hours and paying the highest possible rates. If you are using an equal amount of Peak, Mid Peak, and Off Peak, your average price before any further increases would be approximately 15.1 cents per kilowatt-hour

Large consumers, such as factories and processing plants, pay 2 rates as opposed to 3. The first is called the Hourly Ontario Energy Price, or HOEP. The second price is called the Global Adjustment or GA price that helps cover other costs of electricity supply in Ontario. The 2 rates are inversely proportional; that is, when one goes up, the other goes down – if HOEP rises, GA falls.
