I knew someone who got a DeLorean for his 18th birthday. Totally destroyed it!! But really though, if you can get your hands on a DeLorean and convert it to an EV? That would be EPIC!

And just a reminder, once this 'sale' is over, if you dislike being forced to be on time of use pricing, you can change to the tiered plan (i.e. same price all day).

I think most of us will be saving on things like heating rather than an electric car, thanks though.

The flat rate applies to all electricity use, not sure why OP is calling out electric cars in specific. I also thought I somehow went back in time 22 years because Ontario Hydro hasn't existed since before the millennium.

There are probably a lot more households in Ontario that heat (or at least heat water) with electricity than have electric cars...

Good point. I've edited the thread to focus on points more useful for everyone.

Not that I am complaining, but is there a reason for this temporary relief?

Nothing against OP: this is kind of a reasonable thing to post, but I'm down-voting, because the last thing we need right now with record case numbers, and at least three new strains, is an excuse to travel more.

Edit: given that the post is no longer focused on electric cars, I've removed my downvote.

Must be very old homes.
All of my houses, with the oldest built back in 2010 have a natural gas HWT.

I’m working from home now and sometime back moved to flat rate as my calculations showed this would be somewhat more beneficial to me. Certainly is more convenient as now I can charge my car and run the washer/dryer and dishwasher any time of the day.

Yes. But also anywhere rural that doesn't have access to natural gas...

WTF is with the downvotes, people want to pay more for electricity? :facepalm:

You might also indicate that official confirmation of this price reduction is on your second link.

Isn't tiered 10.1c as initially planned for Jan 1 2020 until this 8.5c kicked in until the lockdown is over? So even the initial post is incorrect, as tiered would be saving 1.6 cents instead of what OP stated as 4 cents +? Yes either way TOU or Tiered currently is 8.5c so it doesn't matter as i type this - but I'm just asking for the sake of clarity... i guess that's part of the numerous downvotes... LOL
