Powercents (Ontario)

With smart meters and Time-Of-Use billing, the price of electricity depends on the season, day of the week and time of day. Powercents helps you take advantage of lower price periods and avoid the more expensive ones.

Here's how:

1. Track Rates: See current Time-Of-Use rates, schedules, seasons and holidays

2. Avoid Peaks: Handy reminders to know when peak times change and when holiday rates apply

3. Power Breakdown: See what’s powering your home and how clean (or dirty) the grid is

Check-in with Powercents to see the current rate period, price and exactly how long until it changes. Making smart energy decisions is a snap with the day's periods and prices at a glance. Avoid peak prices and save money with handy reminders to know when peak times change and when holiday rates apply. Not all kilowatt-hours are created equally, some are cleaner sources of electricity than others. Powercents shows you where your power is coming from and the hourly average carbon emissions intensity (gCO2e/kWh) - a simple measure of how clean (or dirty) the grid is.

Time-Of-Use prices apply to most residential customers with a smart meter across the Province of Ontario.
