Rates and Charges (Business)

Energy+ business customers are billed according to their rate classification, which is determined by the amount of electricity that is consumed monthly and the service size.  In 2019, Energy+ is proposing to harmonize rates for customers in Cambridge, North Dumfries and the County of Brant.

*Note: If you currently purchase electricity through a Retail Energy Contractor, you will continue to follow the terms and price as set out in your contract. The Ontario Energy Board requires that we include the Retail Contractor name and toll-free contact number on the face of your bill. 

Small Businesses

Small businesses with a demand of less than 50 kW per month, automatically qualify for an 8% Provincial Rebate on their bill. The Ontario Energy Board issues electricity rates under the Regulated Price Plan (RPP). The RPP covers two pricing models: Tiered and Time-of-Use. The majority of small businesses in this classification pay Time-of-Use rates.
