Questions and Comments

Question / Comment:

Using the Ontario Energy Board calculator, the largest utilities are the most expensive.

Response:

Using the Ontario Energy Board bill calculator to compare electricity bills it appears that Hydro One bills, especially in rural areas are higher than bills for Guelph Hydro customers. Powerstream and Enersource bills are very close to Guelph Hydro bills, and Horizon Utilities are about $7 more per month.

It’s important to remember that most of your electricity bill (79%) covers the cost of generation, transmission, government agencies and taxes. Those charges apply no matter which company distributes electricity in your area, and the rates are governed by the Ontario Energy Board.
