This fixed electricity price will be in place from June 1 to October 31, 2020.
Starting November 1, 2020, customers will be able to choose a plan that best suits their household and lifestyle with the option of either TOU electricity rates or tiered pricing, which will provide a set rate for electricity up to a certain level of consumption. More details to follow.

2020-2024 Draft Distribution System Plan
Dear Valued Customers:
Newmarket-Tay Power Distribution Limited (“NTPDL”) is pleased to present its draft 5-year Distribution System Plan (“DSP”). The DSP describes NTPDL’s forecasted capital planned investments in its electrical distribution infrastructure that are required to service present and future NTPDL customers over the 5-year period 2020 to the end of 2024. The proposed investments are planned to accomplish the key regulatory outcome of providing timely value to you, our customers.
In this DSP, NTPDL is investing over the 5-year period 2020-2024, a total of $36M in distribution assets or an average of $7.3M per year. In terms of bill impact of this $36M capital investment, a residential customer would see about a $1.25 increase on their monthly bill beginning in 2028. It should be noted that our initial condition assessment undertaken by an independent third party recommended an average yearly spend of over $10M per year, but from extensive customer feedback we understand that you our customers continue to be concerned about rising electricity costs, so we believe the DSP we are presenting balances system and customer needs.
The investments we are making are influenced by your input and are designed to align reliability and service quality with your expectations, including cost mitigation. At this point we would appreciate your time to review the draft DSP and provide us with any comments you may have. This will help us ensure that our plan aligns with your interests, needs, preferences and expectations, and to finalize the prioritization and scheduling of investments.
The DSP and survey will be available for comment from November 2, 2020 to November 27, 2020.

If for any reason you don’t like the convenience of PAP, tell us and we’ll immediately cancel it for you, no questions asked. What is there to lose (other than the burden of having to remember to pay the hydro bill every month)?
