If you need assistance to determine eligibility or to complete the application, a call center dedicated to assisting customers is available at 1-855-831-8151 or email at help@OntarioElectricitySupport.ca. You can also receive assistance with your application from the intake agency partner for the City of Brantford, the Family Counselling Center of Brant. They can be reached at 519-753-4173.
Under most circumstances, the OESP credit will be applied to customer bills for two years. After two years, customers will need to reapply to continue receiving the credit. Once a customer has reapplied, the amount of their OESP credit may go up or down, or stay the same depending on if and how their financial and/or living conditions have changed.
Moving? If so, you will need to reapply to the OESP after you move to continue receiving the credit.
