Use our secure web-based forms for everything from opening up a new account,
notifying us of a move or arranging for automatic withdrawals.

Water Meter Readings

For residential customers, click this link to submit your water meter reading.

Choose between TOU and Tiered Pricing 

Time-of-Use pricing automatically came into effect for all residential and small business customers as of November 1st, 2020 when the COVID-19 flat rate came to an end.   Effective November 1st, all residential and small business customers have the option of notifying Burlington Hydro they prefer to go onto Tiered Pricing using this online form. With Tiered prices, you can use a certain amount of electricity each month at a lower price. Once that limit is exceeded, a higher price applies.   Please note, the same form can be used to switch back from Tiered pricing to Time-of-use pricing.

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.
