COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program (CEAP)
On June 1, 2020, the Government of Ontario confirmed that it is making $9 million available for the COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program (CEAP), to support residential customers struggling to pay their energy bills as a result of the COVID-19 emergency.
CEAP provides a one time, on-bill credit to eligible residential electricity customers to help them catch up on their energy bills and resume regular payments. The program will be delivered by electricity distributors in accordance with rules laid out by the Ontario Energy Board.
Orillia Power will begin accepting applications for CEAP on July 13, 2020.
