Line Loss Adjustment: It is normal for a small amount of power to be lost as it travels over our power lines to your home or business. In calculating your electricity costs for the billing period, we multiply your electricity cost by an adjustment factor that accounts for those losses. We do this using an adjustment factor that is approved by the Ontario Energy Board. The charges for losses are included on the Delivery line of your bill.

Energy charge - retailer rates:

If you are enrolled with a retailer you will see an amount for your energy charge based on your energy contact. You will also have a separate line on your bill related to your retailer rate: Global adjustment cost for the month.
