  • Ontario electricity rates climbing steadily

    Electricity rates for many Ontario consumers went up yet again on Sunday, bumping the cost of a kilowatt hour this winter by between 0.3 and 1.4 cents, depending on the time of day.

    The rate hike applies to most households and small businesses, and is the latest in a series of increases that have made the cost of hydro a contentious issue for many Ontarians.

    Data from the provincial regulator show a steady increase in hydro rates since 2008, when they dipped slightly.
