During this time, Oshawa Power is offering financial assistance and payment flexibility to those affected by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

If you are concerned about paying your bill, are experiencing hardship or have been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, please call us to discuss extended bill payment options and financial assistance programs.

As part of our commitment to our customers, we are also suspending all electricity disconnections until further notice so no customer experiencing any hardship has to worry about potential disconnection.

We recognize that this is a difficult time for everyone and we want our customers to know that we’re here to support them. We want to provide our customers peace of mind so they can concentrate on what matters most — keeping their loved ones safe.
