Beginning January 1, 2017, residential customers are eligible for an 8% Provincial Rebate on their electricity bill. The rebate is equal to the provincial portion of the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST).
It will start to appear on bills that include consumption after January 1, 2017. The rebate does not have an expiry date.
Business, institutional and industrial customers may qualify for the 8% Provincial Rebate. Businesses with a demand of less than 50 kilowatts automatically qualify.
If you previously provided Welland Hydro-Electric System Corp. with a self-declaration form to be exempted from the Debt Retirement Charge (DRC) or to receive the Ontario Clean Energy Benefit (OCEB), you will automatically be enrolled to receive this rebate.
If your status has changed, however, since you provided those forms, you must notify Welland Hydro-Electric System Corp. of that change as it may affect your eligibility to receive the 8% rebate.
If you did not qualify for previous exceptions or credits, you may still be eligible to receive the rebate if:
If you own a multi-residential building (s) that does not have individually metered units, such as some apartment buildings or condominiums, your account may also be eligible.
