Customer Support During the Pandemic
Support for Small Business Customers

Oakville Hydro has always been supportive of our customers and the community. As the pandemic continues to evolve, we are taking active measures to support our customers.

Oakville Hydro is offering Arrears Payment Arrangements in order to provide small business customers with more time to pay outstanding balances on their account. 

Oakville Hydro is monitoring the pandemic and taking necessary actions to manage a reliable electricity supply, while maintaining the safety of the community and our workers.

SUPPORT PROGRAMS. Oakville Hydro would also like to remind customers that we offer several programs to those having difficulty paying their electricity bills:  

COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program for Small Business

The COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program for Small Business (CEAP-SB) is an on-bill credit for eligible small business and registered charity customers to help them catch up on their energy bills and resume regular payments.

CEAP-SB funding is limited. Oakville Hydro will process applications in the order in which they are received. Submitting an application for CEAP-SB to Oakville Hydro does not guarantee funding.

COVID-19 Business Support Grants

The Government of Ontario also announced the temporary COVID-19 Business Support Grants program to help businesses that were required to shut down or restrict services due to provincial public health measures. The rebate will fully offset energy costs for electricity and natural gas (or heating oil/propane) for eligible businesses, as well as property tax. 

Starting November 16, 2020, businesses can apply for grants online. Interested in applying?

You can also call the Stop the Spread Business Information Line at 1-888-444-3659.
