Ontario Electricity Support Program (OESP) & Helping Small Businesses Save Energy The following information is available on the Ontario Ministry of Energy website: Ontario Electricity Support Program (OESP) If you are a customer of an electricity utility and in a low-income home, you may qualify for a reduction on your electricity bill through the Ontario Electricity Support Program (OESP). You could receive a credit on your electricity bill. Beginning in 2016, the OESP will reduce the cost of your household electricity by applying a monthly credit directly to your bill. The amount of the credit you receive depends on two factors: How many people live in your home and Your combined household income. For example, a home with four occupants and an annual income of $37,000 will receive a credit of $34 on each bill. To learn more, please visit the Ministry of Energy OESP webpage. Ontario’s Five-Point Small Business Energy Savings Plan Significant strides have been made in transforming Ontario’s electricity system into one that is clean, reliable and affordable. Since 2003, more than $30 billion has been invested in cleaner generation and in 2014, Ontario completely eliminated coal from the electricity system. Ontario’s Conservation First policy and other government decisions are helping consumers manage electricity costs as efforts continue to make rate mitigation a priority. The Ontario government also recognizes the importance of small and medium sized businesses to workers and families, communities and our province’s economy as a whole. That’s why it provides a range of programs and services to help businesses succeed and thrive — including options for managing energy costs for a better bottom line.
