Choose between TOU, Tiered and ULO Pricing
If you’re a residential customer, you can choose to switch between Time-of-Use (TOU), Tiered and the Ultra-Low Overnight (ULO) price plans.
To switch price plans, you must notify Burlington Hydro by completing and submitting an election form. There is no deadline and you can ask to switch at any time. If you want to stay with your current price plan no action is required. If you are unsure what price plan you are currently on, check the Electricity line of your bill. Most residential and small business customers in Ontario pay TOU prices.
Application for New Service
This is the starting point for all new residential customer applications. An account setup charge of $30.00 plus HST is apoplicable for setting up a new Burlington Hydro account. You may be asked to provide a deposit at any time. Deposits are held as a security to guarantee future charges.

With Equal Payment, twelve equal monthly payments will be withdrawn from your account on the date you choose.
