Water & Waste Charges
Halton Hills Hydro acts as a billing agent for Water and Waste Water on behalf of the Region of Halton. Their charges appear in this section.

Some of the delivery charges are based on peak energy demand in a billing period rather than total energy used. These charges are detailed here.
Regulatory charges are the costs of administering the wholesale electricity system and maintaining the reliability of the provincial grid and include the costs associated with funding Ministry of Energy conservation and renewable energy programs.
Most electricity generating companies receive a guaranteed price for the electricity that they produce. The GA accounts for differences between the spot market price and the rates paid to regulated and contracted generators as well as conservation and demand management programs. The GA rate varies from month to month.
These are the costs of delivering electricity from generating stations across the Province to Halton Hills Hydro and then to your home or business. This includes the costs to build and maintain the transmission and distribution lines, towers and poles and operate provincial and local electricity systems. A portion of these charges are fixed and do not change from month to month. The rest are variable and increase or decrease depending on the amount of electricity that you use. The delivery charge also includes costs relating to electricity lost through distributing electricity to your home or business. When electricity is delivered over a power line, it is normal for a small amount of power to be consumed or lost as heat. Equipment, such as wires and transformers, consumes power before it gets to your home or business. Halton Hills Hydro collects this money and pays this amount directly to our suppliers.
Hourly Ontario Energy Price
The price you pay for electricity is based on the Hourly Ontario Energy Price and your hourly energy consumption. Some Large Commercial Customers pay an averaged daily price called Net System Load Shape – depending on the type of meter installed.
This is the cost of electricity supplied to you during a billing period. If you purchase your electricity through an energy retailer, their charge will appear here.
