    I had checked my account online, and the status said Tiered, but the online tracking (I looked at daily use) still showed TOU. So I called Toronto Hydro and they confirmed I was switched over to Tiered on the correct date. So now I just wait for the online tracking to catch up and/or get my Nov-Dec bill. Shall be interesting to see what it shows me.

    Yay, inexpensive hydro for my next birthday! Better than the rate we had during April-August 2020. However, I notice that temperatures will get a touch chillier this weekend and into next week. Reach for throw blankets and your favourite warm drinks and fuzzy warm socks (slippers too if they are easy to wear and to walk in).

    Received my last Toronto Hydro statement.

    Confirmed I am definitely on Tiered rate structure. A cursory analysis shows that I saved approximately 2-3$ by being on Tiered. This is in line with what the analysis tool implied when I did a comparison in October.

    So bottom line is I am pleased to have switched. Savings are there and I can use hydro at any time and not be concerned with the rate.

    Just a reminder for folks in Ontario

    Residential rate changes

    Changes as of January 1, 2021

    To support Ontarians currently staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ontario government has announced they're providing relief by temporarily holding the price of electricity at the fixed rate of 8.5¢/kWh for all customers paying Time-of-Use (TOU) and Tiered rates under the Regulated Price Plan (RPP). This reduced rate will automatically be applied to your bill — no customer action is required. Delivery Charges and the Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) were also updated.

    I had to remind my Bro about the fixed rate for most of January today as he said I was wasting electricity today. However, this week, it's been a pleasure to do laundry during the daytime and not worry about the kwh rate for peak periods. I'm sure there are households still adjusting to online schooling and work from home and figuring out who goes online and during what times to share Internet access and other electrical devices.

    If Ontarians don't get the continued 8.5cents per kwh no matter which hour of the day (after Jan.28), I predict a hard reality adjustment for everyone. Such a treat to get the tiered rate experience this month for all activities needing electrical power.

    Enjoy the remainder of the alloted days, just in case!
