The provincial government is extending its emergency orders on hydro to continue providing electricity bill relief during COVID-19.
According to a news release on Saturday, Ontario has extended the order to help industrial and commercial consumers.
The order, which was first introduced on May 1, will defer a portion of the Global Adjustment charges from April and May.
Residents can expect the emergency order on hydro to be carried through to the end of June.
In a separate news release from the Ontario government, a new fixed electricity price, known as the 'COVID-19 recovery rate', will be introduced to all-time-use customers.
Set by the Ontario Energy Board, the COVID-19 recovery rate will charge 12.8 cents per kilowatt hour from June 1 to October 31.
The provincial government says the new price will help to continue to suspend time-of-use prices in a fiscally responsible manner.
