Low Volume Consumer or Designated Consumer

As of January 1, 2017, the Government of Ontario is introducing an 8% rebate under the Ontario Rebate for Electricity Consumers Act, 2016. The rebate is equal to the provincial portion of the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) on the bills of residential, farm, small business and other eligible customers and will begin to appear on electricity bills for eligible customers effective January 1, 2017.

All residential and small business customers will automatically qualify for this rebate; however, under additional eligibility criteria provided in the Act, larger commercial accounts may be eligible to receive the 8% rebate on their bill.

Please download the Certification form here to verify that you meet the requirements of a 'Designated Consumer' in regards to multi-unit residential premises, and if so, fill in the form and return it to Newmarket Hydro.
