Starting next May, you won’t have to wait until nine o’clock to do your laundry. Government sources tell The Canadian Press that off-peak electricity rates in Ontario will start two hours earlier starting next May.

Off-peak hours will start at 7 p.m. instead of 9 p.m.

A senior government source said the change will help make conservation easier.

“This will help families with an additional two hours in the evening to benefit from lower rates — or an extra 10 hours a week,” said the source.

“This help for families — with a little extra time to take advantage of lower prices — is in addition to the new Clean Energy Benefit which will provide families with 10 per cent off of their electricity bills every month, for five years.”
