Kenora Hydro


On January 1, 2017, your electricity costs went down 8%.
Ontario Ministry Logo

Ontario’s government is reducing electricity costs by rebating an amount equal to the provincial portion of the HST on your monthly hydro bill. That’s an 8% rebate for Ontario families, and on average will mean $130 more in your pocket each year.

This is part of Ontario’s plan to help people with the costs of everyday living by reducing electricity costs. Across Ontario, about five million residential consumers, farms and small businesses will benefit from this rebate.

Kenora Hydro will implement these savings onto your bill by July 1, 2017. Applicable savings will be retroactive to January 1, 2017.

Eligible rural ratepayers will receive additional relief that will decrease total electricity bills by an average of $540 a year or $45 a month, inclusive of your 8% rebate. This decrease will be reflected in the delivery charge, as a result of the enhanced Rural or Remote Rate Protection (RRRP).

Kenora Hydro is dedicated to the safe reliable supply of electricity to the citizens of Kenora.
