Why do the On-peak and Mid-peak times shift in summer and winter?

In summer, we have more hours of daylight, so the need for lighting is reduced in the mornings and evenings; in winter when days are shorter, we use more lighting in the mornings and late afternoon and more heating during these hours as well. Summer also sees a spike in air conditioning during mid-day hours, so demand is higher.

Some holidays are also considered as Off-Peak. Please download the 2015 Holiday Schedule here.

Regulated Price Plan (RPP)

The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) is responsible for regulating electricity prices for low-volume consumers – those who use fewer than 250,000 kWh a year. The OEB adjusts these rates twice a year, to better reflect the true cost of electricity. More information about the regulated price plan is available at http://www.ontarioenergyboard.ca/OEB/.

Consumers who purchase electricity from Haldimand County Hydro are charged the following rates for electricity consumption. These rates are set by the Ontario Energy Board as part of the Regulated Price Plan. If you purchase electricity from an electricity retailer, the prices you pay will be different and will be stated in the contract you signed.
