Ontario electricity ratepayers can choose to bolt from time-of-use pricing after Halloween. While the Progressive Conservatives are freezing electricity prices round the clock at 12.8 cents per kilowatt hour through Oct. 31, Energy Minister Greg Rickford said consumers will then be able to select the billing plan that works best for them. With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing more people to work from home, Rickford on Monday moved to eliminate time-of-use (TOU) pricing for the next five months.
