What are the terms of the Bill?

  • The credit will represent 2.4857% of the electricity consumption billed to you between January 1, 2018, and December 31, 2019 (not applicable to administrative fees).
  • Application of a rate freeze for the year 2020 beginning of April 1.

Existing Hydro Westmount Client

If you are still a client of Hydro Westmount, you don’t have to do anything. Your refund will be applied as a credit to your bill starting in March, based on your billing date. The credit will appear on your bill under “adjustment”.
