OFA provides comments to the Ministry of Energy regarding a proposal to enable a new voluntary enhanced time-of-use rate price plan. OFA supports the Ministry’s interest in creating enhanced time-of-use (TOU) options. Our farm communities struggle to secure safe, reliable and cost-effective energy including electricity, natural gas and renewable options. OFA anticipates that many Ontario rural farm innovators would be interested to opt-in to a program like the residential low-overnight-pricing pilot and accept a higher on-peak electricity price in exchange for an ultra-low overnight price. Regional distribution and concentration of energy intense agriculture are unique benefit to such pilots and we anticipate that farmers would be interested in participation.
