With winter around the corner, I wanted to take a moment to share some of the financial assistance programs offered to low-income customers to keep residents cozy and warm amidst the lower temperatures.
These programs, available for review at hydroottawa.com, provide relief to constituents who are having difficulty paying their electricity bills.
One particular program is the Ontario Electricity Support Program, which provides ongoing and long-term financial support to low-income customers. Some customers may be eligible to receive a credit of up to $900 a year towards their electricity bill. Constituents need only fill out an application, available at OntarioElectricitySupport.ca.
I highly encourage residents to share this information with any friends or family members who may require additional assistance this coming winter. Nobody should be left out in the cold.
