With changes in legislation, prices on the Electricity line are increasing so that they once again closely reflect the forecast cost of supply.The Ontario government has introduced an expanded rebate (the Ontario Electricity Rebate) providing bill relief that will be applied to customer bills, largely offsetting the price changes on the Electricity line. The Ontario Electricity Rebate of 31.8 per cent replaces the eight per cent provincial rebate, and applies to consumption on and after November 1.

 

Global Adjustment 

The Global Adjustment (previously the Provincial Benefit) rate is set and adjusted to support Ontario's generating capacity. Its value may be positive or negative depending fluctuation of prices in the spot market. 

The rate is set to reflect the difference between spot market price and: 

  • The regulated rate paid to Ontario Power Generation's baseload generating stations;
  • Payment made to suppliers that have been awarded contracts through the Ontario Power Authority. These include new gas-fired facilities, renewable facilities (like wind farms) and demand response programs;
  • Contracted rates paid to Non-Utility Generators.

Who is affected by the Global Adjustment?

This adjustment applies to business customers who pay the spot market price and customers who have signed a contract with a licensed electricity retailer (see contract details). It appears as a separate line on the bill. For customers who pay the Regulated Price Plan (i.e., Time of Use), it is factored into the rate set by the Ontario Energy Board, and does not appear as a separate line item.

Why does Global Adjustment vary from month to month?

The Global Adjustment has increased and decreased in response to changes in the spot market prices. For example, a combination of low demand and good availability of generation will result in a low spot market price, and high costs of contracted and other regulated generation will increase the spot market prices.
