The price of electricity is going back up.  The province announced that reduced rates for hydro has ended and Ontarians will once again be billed based on the hour the electricity is used, or the tiered prices, which charge a fixed rate for a set amount of electricity consumption.

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Energy says rates will return to normal now that lockdowns have been lifted across most of the province.
