Energy Bill Relief with COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program
Do you know about the COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program (CEAP)? It provides an on-bill credit to eligible residential, small business and registered charity customers to help them catch up on their energy bills and resume regular payments. Residential customers can receive up to $750 and small business/registered charity customers up to $1,500—for electricity and natural gas bills, respectively.
CEAP is funded by the Government of Ontario and delivered by electricity and natural gas utilities and unit sub-meter providers (USMPs). To apply, contact your utility or USMP directly as each may have a unique approach for application in-take. CEAP funding is limited with applications processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
