Flip the Switch is our new commitment to customers to better listen and respond to their questions and concerns. As part of that commitment, our leadership team joined our call centre to listen to your concerns and answer your questions on February 16th, Hydro One Day. A video crew was there to capture highlights from the event.

Flip the Switch is our new commitment to customers to better listen and respond to their questions and concerns. Read on to see what we mean.

WE'RE
LISTENING

This new commitment means making it easier for you to share your concerns with us. Our recent Hydro One Day was an unqualified success. We received thought-provoking questions and comments from all across the province. We’ll be posting a selection of your questions and our responses soon. Be sure to follow us on social media for updates, including future event announcements.

WE'RE
RESPONDING

Listening is an important first step, but we’re also following that up with action. So we’re working hard to make electricity more affordable for our customers through offerings like paperless billing and various support programs.

We’re also renewing our commitment to customer service: returning calls within one business day, no missed appointments and completing new connections within 5 business days. And we’re backing that commitment with a $75 guarantee.

4.8¢ TAXES
4.3¢ OTHER COSTS paid to generators and the Independent Electricity System Operator.
36.7¢ TO HYDRO ONE TO DELIVER ELECTRICITY We build, maintain and operate 152,000 km of powerlines, 85,000 steel towers and 1.6 million poles over 640,000 square km to transmit and distribute electricity to our customers.

*Based on January 2017 rates for a medium density residential customer consuming 750 kWh per month.

WE'RE BEING MORE
TRANSPARENT

Our customers have told us we need to be clearer about what we do, and what they’re paying for. For example, many customers who receive their electricity directly from Hydro One don’t realize that only about 37% of their bill actually goes to Hydro One to cover delivery – the rest goes to energy producers, federal taxes and other charges.
