The Ontario Clean Energy Benefit (OCEB) rebate took effect on January 1, 2011 and will last for 5 years until December 31, 2015.
The 10% electricity rebate will automatically apply to all eligible residents, commercials, and farms throughout Ontario (general service energy-billed with less than 50 kW demand) .
The rebate will include all eligible electricity consumers currently serving with their local electricity suppliers using two-tiered and Time-of-Use (TOU).
