You have two options available to pay your hydro bill using Visa, MasterCard or American Express.
Please note that here is a 1.75 % fee for payment.
Your payment is due 16 days from the statement date on your bill. If your payment is late, a charge of 1.5% per month will be added to the balance. Please remember that payments made online or by phone can take up to five days to process.
If we still have not received your payment seven calendar days after the payment due, you will receive a friendly reminder call to advise you of your outstanding balance. If your bill remains unpaid or payment arrangements are not made with Oakville Hydro within 10 business days of the telephone reminder, a collection letter will be hand delivered to your billing address. This letter gives you a 10-day advance notice that we may disconnect your service.
For complete details of our collection process please see section 2.2.1 of our Conditions of Service.
If your cheque or pre-authorized payment is returned from the bank, we will either send a letter or call you to let you know that your payment has been returned. A fee of $15.00, plus bank charges will apply. If your cheque is not replaced, or payment terms are not negotiated for the overdue amount, we will begin the above collection process for your account.
