Help for Low-Income Energy Consumers

Consumers with limited financial resources face specific challenges. To better understand issues affecting low-income energy consumers, and assess the need for and nature of energy-efficient upgrades to address the challenges facing these consumers, the Ontario Energy Board initiated a consultation with interested stakeholders.

Since 2011, the following resources are available to qualified residents of Ontario through the Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP):

Emergency financial assistance for low-income energy consumers in need

More flexible customer service rules

Health and Safety Program Requirements

Targeted conservation programs (Save on Energy Home Assistance, and others)

Ontario Electricity Support Program (OESP)

If you are a customer of Lakeland Power and in a lower-income home, you may qualify for a reduction on your electricity bill.

The OESP will reduce the cost of your household electricity by applying a monthly credit directly to your bill. The credit amount will depend on how many people live in your home and your combined household income. More information at ontarioelectricitysupport.ca.
