Covid-19 Energy Assistance Program (CEAP) for Residential Customers
July 13, 2020
The Government of Ontario is providing $9 million to support eligible residential customers struggling to pay their energy bills as a result of COVID-19. CEAP is delivered directly by electricity utilities, including Burlington Hydro, further to rules laid out by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB). 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. Eligible customers can apply starting today, July 13, 2020.
COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program for Small Business Customers
The government has also announced $8 million for the COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program for Small Business (CEAP-SB) to help small businesses that are struggling to pay their energy bills as a result of the COVID-19 emergency. We expect that program details will be available later this summer.
