The Ontario Electricity Support Program (OESP) will provide ongoing assistance directly on the bills of eligible low-income electricity consumers.The amount of the credit depends on two factors:

  • how many people live in the home and
  • your combined household income

For some consumers, the need to use more electricity is unavoidable. They may receive a higher level of assistance. These are people who rely on electric heat or medical devices as well as First Nation or Métis consumers.
