A Game-Changer for EV Owners

Alectra Utilities and Hydro One, two major Ontario utilities, have introduced the ultra-low overnight (ULO) electricity pricing plan, revolutionizing EV charging for consumers. The ULO plan offers substantial cost savings for those who charge their electric vehicles during off-peak hours.

Grid Relief and Savings

Beyond cost savings, the ULO plan eases the strain on the electricity grid during peak times, benefiting both consumers and the distribution system. With four pricing periods, the overnight rate stands out as exceptionally affordable, priced at just 2.4 cents per kWh.
