Ontario Electricity Support Program

There's help for low-income households

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.

The OESP could 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.

If your home is electrically heated, or you rely on an approved medical device requiring a lot of electricity, you could be eligible for additional credit.

To learn if you are eligible for this provincial program, please visit the program application page or call 1-855-831-8151.
