Hydro Facts - Ontario Most Expensive in Canada

The rates and graph have now been updated for all jurisdictions to reflect the prices as of May 1st 2016.

Have you had enough of escalating electricity rates, outrageous delivery, regulatory and debt charges, billing mistakes, and excuses from Hydro One and the Wynne Government?

Rising costs and all these extra charges have made Ontario the most expensive jurisdiction for electricity in Canada. I have put together this fact comparison with the other provinces- clearly this government's energy policies are bankrupting us.

*Alberta was left out of the comparisons due to multiple utilities operating throughout the province on different systems*

Take a look at this chart demonstrating the all-in-cost for rural resident's monthly billing across Canada.

Someone noted here that Hydro One should be shut down and we should invite American competition. Sadly, it’s American companies, i.e. Liberal friends, that are directing and instructing all of this BS, that our system is facing. People have to be told the truth as to who is really running the show here. Our PC MPP’s and NDP MPP’s, should bring it all out into the open. Can we stand to hear the truth? Some of it is pretty heavy. What has our Government gotten us into. All of this needs to be gone, wiped out, and the clock turned back. Are we ready for the truth Ontario?

My hydro bills for the winter are very close to $1000.00 per month, granted I do have forced air electric heat. My condo in Florida runs hydro 24/7 fridge, air conditioner 1/4 the size of my house and my bill per month is $32.00 US. What the hell is going on here? Something has to be done. Shut Hydro one down , invite some American competition and kick the Wynn government out to Tin-buck-two!!!

Hydro Ones issues simplified!
Who in the right mind would sign green energy contracts for 20 year terms at a cost of up to 80 cents a KWH, if you can buy it for 3.3 cents KWH in the open market?
For those having a hard time understanding this, it is like rather than buying your truck from dealer A for $ 40,000.00 go to dealer B and pay $ 970,000.00 !

I’m not sure what can be done – short of sending in the army – to get the message to Hydro One that they are bankrupting the citizens of Ontario. Multiple reports from the Auditor General and Ombudsman have been highly, highly critical of virtually every aspect of Hydro One’s operating procedures, and yet nothing changes. I just seem to get an endless flow of hydro bills, and knowing what I know about the mistakes they commonly make in billing it’s hard to trust that I’m not paying for the same period multiple times. What I do know is that even if I’m being billed properly the cost of electricity is absolutely outrageous.
People need to wake up to the fact that thanks to the ridiculous policies of the Wynne government Ontarians will be saddled with high prices for hydro forever.
How this government got re-elected after the Dalton McGuinty fiasco is completely and utterly beyond me. If Kathleen Wynne is re-elected it will be tempting to join the majority of my schoo lfriends who have left Ontario and never looked back.

ROB

Excellent points you have made, I see your side really well. What this shows me is that again, Hydro does what it wants all the time.

I dont see any Leader calling them on it. All is see is people blaming the politicians who have no control what so ever with Hydro process. I hear blame from NDP (cause all she does is whine), I hear NOTHING from PC cause they have to still figure out who is running the ship and I hear….blah, blah, blah from Wynne and how the past has hurt us…

If I was leader, I would put a stop on wages. I would privatize the areas that are least producing and I would contract out all clerical work. Fire them all and start new….shake things up.

From the top down, CEO Formosa (spelling).. who was fired for being one of the top money earners in Ontario and least productive, what a nightmare to begin.

We implemented SAP under her reign of terror and trust me when I say, the Vendors were not being paid in over a year due to the mess up of SAP. 1 year later our poor vendors and suppliers were not getting paid. It got to the point that lawyers were walking in and serving papers for payment of services and product. These poor companies were laying people off, stressing how to survive etc all because our new SAP system was not paying them. Some in the millions of dollars, but the funny part was that they were receiving Hydro Bills every month just fine.

and the Hydro staff were taking leave of absence up to a 6 – 9 months cause of the stress that what brought on…please these clerks push paper and they wanted stress leave.

My point of this is, no one from the GVT stepped in to do anything about it. No one…I was there and it sucked going to work and yet the GVT did nothing.

If I were to hear from a Political Party a real agenda on how to stop this Cash Cow..they would have my vote. Not a Trump idea where its not even thought of yet..but a real concrete agenda..thats what we need…I am hoping you have something like that..you do seem to know the Grid System well.

I dont understand it at all. There hasnt been one political party that has been able to do anything with Hydro One because it is a cash cow.. Not one politician has given any proof that they know what to do..not one…This Hydro One has too much weight and pushes around anyone that gets in their way. I worked at Hydro and I can tell you that the Union and Managers..all the way up to CEO dont even flitch when the GVT talks.
I started as entry level paper pusher and made over 56K a year, union…I was shocked at this pay but I needed a job.
Do we really think its because we make too much electricity? I think its because the pays and the wages are so out of whack…
Im sure that payroll at Hydro One is probably their biggest cost..yet no one can do anything about it..cause if they do…shut down the system.

So for those of you that like to pat Harris or yell at McGuinty or Wynne…none of them had the balls to tackle the Hydro problem cause its beyond them..its bigger than them or any party.

Why can’t Ontario Hydro engineers investigate what other provinces are doing to provide electricity cheaper than Ontario .

Are all the people criticizing Harris tryng to say McGuinty and Wynne are good managers of Ontario’s finances. Harris did not waste money or overspend. He reduced needless expenditures that were not value for money. I can appreciate that the people cut off from the various gravy trains by Harris were as upset as the politically connected Wind Turbine companies who have now seen their expansion curtailed.

Personally since I use Geothermal heating and need electricity to run the condensers, I must now spend well over $2,000 a year more, over and beyond normal inflation, on my Hydro One bill, despite doing everything possible to conserve energy, and this is on account of incompetence by McGuinty and Wynne. I would like to see the Liberal commenters on this site explain how the track record of McGuinty and Wynne is somehow better than Harris on this file.

Well Rob, I don’t live in Toronto. The only thing Harris did for me was download provincial responsibilities to municipalities, with no money to fund them. So my property taxes skyrocketed as our local politicians tried somehow to fund programs like social services, etc. Did I see a tax cut? Nope, just the illusion of tax cuts and a big sales pitch.

@ Rob Price …you quoted Mike Harris as saying "On transit: “No one gives us credit for the transit expansion. Nothing had been built in 25 years, subway-wise. We started Sheppard. We didn’t ask the feds for money. It’s not a federal responsibility. It was two-parts province, one-part city.” ….. TOTAL NONSENSE…. Mike Harris cut total funding for public transit at TTC…which resulted in rebuilding old GM buses and using the farebox to fund operating costs (the ONLY transit system in North America at the time in doing this)…he brags about the Sheppard subway which was a white elephant that had LOW ridership for years…there was NO money going into improving/replacing old subway infrastrucure as well…. so PLEASE stop the bull about Harris….

The real question is, will a different government lower these rates appreciably? I have not seen any evidence of that in the past. Harris gifted us with huge local tax increases.

I think one of the major problems for those of us who live anywhere outside of a major urban centre is not the cost of the actual electricity, but rather the cost of distribution. If I lived 10 km south of where I am now, my monthly bill for the same amount of electricity would be $64.79 rather than the $106.82 I am paying. I tried to find another province in Canada that had such a massive difference between urban and rural customers, and could not, although I may be mistaken there – as I said, I couldn’t find comprehensive data comparisons. The closest I could find was low density rural rates in Alberta, and their total percentage of distribution & other costs was 55% of their total bill (which was lower than ON rates) vs. 34-40 percent for other areas – I am currently paying 71% for distribution and other charges and that is set to increase, on top of higher electricity prices.
The distribution rates are being changed, as was noted in an earlier post, to fixed monthly rates. Of course, high volume users will benefit from that change, paying less than they now pay, and low volume users (i.e. those who foolishly have tried to conserve electricity) will pay higher rates than we currently pay. I am not sure how that will aid the effort to lower energy consumption, We all remember what lower usage last winter did for our rates!!

Another concern is the rate of increase that Ontarians are facing. Several different sources online (including CBC, CHCH etc.) suggest that the increase in rates are greater in ON than anywhere else in North America – Toronto Sun (albeit perhaps not the gold standard in reporting) used a figure of 72% increase in kWh rate since 2006. I can’t comment on the accuracy of that figure, but I can comment on my own bills – in October of 2012, I was paying 22.7 cents per kWh; July 2014 was 24.7 cents per kWh; Sept 2015 it was 32 cents per kWh and recent bills is 39.7 cents per kWh (and bills before that topped 40 cents). That seems like a very large increase in 4 years, with no end in sight. Those on a fixed income are essentially stuck, as there is little we can do to minimize the effect of these increases – using less power or changing when you use it will not help your bottom line in any appreciable way.

Rob, there is no need, nor is it particularly effective, for you to cast aspersions on my character. I was genuinely trying to make a contribution to a discussion of a topic on which I have done a great deal of research over a period of 30 years. If you elevated the tone of your comments and showed more respect for the other conversants, you would have a more productive outcome.
commented 2016-09-14 12:29:54 -0400 · Flag
Yes, Germans pay less of their household budget for energy than we do in Ontario even though their rates are much higher (again, please apply the appropriate conversion rate when citing international prices. My quotes are all converted using the PPP exchange rates published by IEA.) The fact that you use a below-average amount of electricity results in you paying more per kW.hour than the average, because of the fixed cost component. These fixed costs are becoming the norm in electricity pricing throughout the world and are fundamentally linked to the capital intensity of the supply (especially nuclear in the case of Ontario) and the T&D system, costs which are there regardless of the level of use on the system. While it is tempting for partisans to paint this issue as having being caused by whichever party they don’t like, the capital intensity of the Ontario electricity infrastructure goes back decades, has been exacerbated by decisions of governments of all three parties, and has its roots in decisions taken in the 1970’s that led to a massive overshoot in generation investment.

Rob, I believe you are quoting those US rates in US dollars — you have to apply the correct exchange rate for the time of comparison. And a cardinal rule for comparing things is to draw the data from the same source to ensure consistency, whereas you are using different sources for different locations. What would be the impact on rates of the measures you propose?
commented 2016-09-14 10:39:54 -0400 · Flag
New York, Boston, San Francisco, all examples of North American jurisdictions where electricity is more expensive than in Ontario. It is important to compare costs using a common demand scenario (say 1000 kwh/month) and to include everything (distribution and fixed charges, taxes, etc). Interestingly, the highest power rates in the western world are in Germany, not exactly an industrial and economic backwater, AND energy costs are actually a lower percentage of household disposable income in Germany than they are in Canada, even with their much higher rates. Rates are also much higher than Canada in Sweden, Japan, other several other advanced industrial economies. With some important exceptions, electricity costs are well under two percent of value added for most businesses in Ontario. Of course, we would all like electricity to be cheaper, but there is an economic downside to cheap energy, which is that we fall behind on innovation and technology. Still, I would like to hear Mr. Price’s proposal for cutting power costs in Ontario.

Mr. Price, I did not challenge the accuracy of the chart, as I mentioned below, but how comprehensive the information is. Showing the rates of 20-25% of Ontario households is not a complete picture of Ontario’s hydro rates as it leaves out 75-80% of all Ontario households. Please site your sources for concluding that it is a hydro fact that Ontario has the most expensive in Canada.

I would like to challenge the information provided on this chart. It may be accurate but it is not comprehensive. Hydro One is NOT Ontario. It is one of many companies that provide power to Ontario. Why was it chosen to represent Ontario? Hydro Quebec has provided a comparison of rates for 2015 and while rates in Ontario have risen, I don’t believe they are much different from last year. https://issuu.com/hydroquebec/docs/comp_2015_en?e=1151578/31242512

Once again, I am in total agreement with Rob Price. We are on a Time of Use meter, and use VERY little electricity overall. Our on-peak usage is 17 percent of the total electricity used. Off-peak is 63 percent. My last bill was $104.27 for 258.12 kWh… I am actually paying 40.4 cents per kWh used. I am a rural resident. Even when the tax is not considered, the price is still 35.7 cents per kWh used. So much for Hydro One’s commitment to conservation – have the highest rates for the lowest use.

I am in total agreement with Rob Price here…any site I have accessed online is showing that Hydro One rates are higher than other provinces, and also that the rate of increase for Ontario is the highest in North America. Personally, we use very little hydro compared to many homes, and our monthly bill is never less than $105 for 258 kw usage. The delivery fees alone are over 60 percent of my bill. You would think there should be some “bonus” for using less electricity if conservation was actually important to Hydro One. Definitely NOT the case in my experience.

I am wondering where your stats came from because I have went to actual provencial hydro sites and looked at all their charges and costs etc to customers and Nova Scotia still costs more then Ontario once you factor in TAXES ETC

your rates also seem to be fabricated from official sources and seem to use ONLY the winter rates or highest rates.

This Hydro One survey is a JOKE! I sent the following:
What other Province has someone like Wynne who is mismanaging our primary staple for every day life? How Greedy! You should be ashamed that the 1.3m or 42% of ON population are unable to afford their hydro and are on the verge of loosing their homes, because YOU, Wynne, and those that work with you. Commercial and Industrial companies are leaving Canada and ON because of the extortion of hydro rates. They go to Mexico, China, India, etc. Hydro One doesn’t generate electricity? Does not set prices? Then who does? Obviously Hydro One is not transparent in billing and telling ON what’s really going on. Remove the on-peak, mid-peak, charges. Only have off-peak @ 8.7 cents. Remove delivery charges. Remove regulatory charges. Debt retirement charge exemption saved $9.60. What a joke! We have enough resources i.e. solar farms, wind, water, etc. to provide our Province with our own hydro. Why are we paying the U.S. to take our extra hydro? Our sister-province QC rates are what we should be paying. We are a hop-skip-jump from QC, yet we do not cooperate with our own Canadian Province to provide hardworking Ontario’ans a hydro bill that they can afford to pay?
It’s a sad state of affairs when a working family has to decide what to pay for first: Hydro OR nutritious food, gasoline for a vehicle to go to work, school trips/supplies, fix a home, purchase medications, pay mortgage, pay land taxes, etc.
1st: lower electricity rate. Remove 3 tier billing. (if I start my washing machine at 6:30 am and it finishes at 7:15 am, am I paying both rates?)
2nd: be transparent. Where is hydro generating electricity? Who sets the prices?
3rd: remove all extra charges
4th: families immigrating or refugees benefit the most from so-called “savings”. Their families are very large compared.
5th: STOP spending money on useless brochures, pamphlets, and junk-mail. Especially coupon savings. Give coupons to retailers so consumers can make the purchase and receive the discount directly at point of purchase.
6th: Who is paying for this survey? Is it the 1.3 million Ontario’ans X $90 a survey? (which is average cost of a survey by ipsos research, and the research company that Wynne utilizes)
Make hydro affordable – just like the other Provinces in Canada,so we can have a quality, balanced life. We as Canadian DESERVE that.

I rent a one bedroom apartment in Toronto.
My monthly hydro bill reaches $150. I’m never home, don’t have central air and my AC was on once this summer.
Hydro can’t explain what I’m paying for.
I used to pay $40 for the same apartment with central air.
It’s a ripoff, and they are not even trying to hide it.
What can I do to avoid that?
