April Billing Update:
We are currently making updates to our systems and are experiencing delays in processing monthly billing for April.
We are working to resolve the technical issues and apologize for any inconvenience.

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.
Support for customers during the province-wide shutdown
The province-wide shutdown means that people will be staying home or running their small businesses from home. The Ontario Government has taken steps to hold the price of electricity at 8.5 ¢/kWh for electricity from January 1 until the end of the day on January 28, 2021. Residential, small and farm customers on Time-to-Use and Tiered price plan set under the Ontario Energy Board’s Regulated Price Plan will pay that fixed price. So, no matter what time of day you use your electricity, or how much you use, the fixed price will apply.
The price change will happen automatically. No customer action is required. For more information, visit oeb.ca

2020-2024 Draft Distribution System Plan
Dear Valued Customers:
Newmarket-Tay Power Distribution Limited (“NTPDL”) is pleased to present its 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 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.
Try out a pre-authorized payment plan (PAP) with Newmarket-Tay Power Distribution. 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)?
