* Oshawa PUC Networks does not solicit door to door

If you are approached to sign or renew a gas or electricity contract for your home or small business, it’s important to know who you’re dealing with. Energy company salespeople must wear an ID badge and give you a business card.

Four things to remember if you are approached to sign an energy contract:

  • Always make sure you get a business card and look at the salesperson’s ID badge first
  • Don’t share personal information (i.e. your gas or electricity bill) unless you are sure you want to sign a contract
  • Carefully read the contract, disclosure statement and price comparison provided by the salesperson
  • OPUC Networks Inc does not go door to door

The application period for the Solar Storage Pilot Program has come to an end, and we are no longer accepting new applications at this time.

While OPUCES ultimately reserves the right to determine who will be accepted into the program, we will be reviewing the qualified applicants on a first come first reviewed basis. An OPUCES representative will visit the home to further verify the eligibility. A final list will be prepared and home owners will be notified.

Oshawa PUC Energy Services Inc. has partnered with the New Energy and Industrial Development Organization to bring a Solar Energy Storage and Management System (SEMS) pilot program to Oshawa. This pilot program will include the harvest, usage, and storage of solar energy in 30 residential homes. Each home will be fitted with solar panels, a battery, and an inverter. The SEMS will be able to provide enough energy for the usage of the average household. Excess energy will be stored in the battery or fed back into the Oshawa PUC distribution grid per the Government of Ontario’s net-metering program.

This pilot program will run at no cost to the homeowner. This pilot program will run at no cost to the homeowner. To participate, home owners may find more information including recruitment and application details at www.opuc.on.ca or visit the OPUCES office at 100 Simcoe St. S, Oshawa.

OPUC and its employees continue a proud tradition of supporting worthy causes in the community

Throughout 2015, the corporation is putting a special focus on providing support for organizations that assist people in need. The company matched employee donations to various charity efforts including the Port Perry Hospital Foundation and relief efforts following the crisis in Nepal. The company also provided donations to the 13th Annual Oshawa Mayor’s Golf Classic in support of the Oshawa Community Health Centre as well as the Lakeridge Health Foundation Golf Classic in support of the Lakeridge Health Foundation.

For the third year, OPUC’s team of enthusiastic employees raised $2400 by climbing aboard The Big Bike on June 24, 2015 to cycle through downtown Oshawa in The Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada’s Ride for Heart.

** Warning – Please read carefully **

OPUCN would like to caution our customers to be aware of a scam which may involve someone calling you or visiting you to claim that your electricity bill is overdue and that your payments were misapplied to the wrong account and/or that your service will be disconnected if you don’t immediately pay through a pre-paid credit card or wire transfer. In some situations they are asking customers to repay their account and will issue a refund from the account where the payment was misapplied.

OPUCN notifies customers of outstanding balances ONLY through an automated phone call or hand delivered notice and customers are given time to make overdue payments.

If you receive a call of this nature, please contact the Durham Regional Fraud Unit at 905-579-1520.
