2012 Electricity Supply Mix


Nuclear units remained the cornerstone of Ontarios supply mix in 2012. Gas
and hydroelectric units continued to provide important flexibility by ramping
production up and down in response to changes in demand and wind output.
Wind generation has grown to become a mainstream resource.

In 2012, nuclear output showed a modest increase to 85.6 TWh, up from


85.3 TWh the year before, representing 56.4 per cent of total generation.
Contributions from renewable resources continued to grow. Wind production
increased from 3.9 TWh to 4.6 TWh. On a percentage basis, it represented 3.0
per cent of total output - up from 2.6 per cent in 2011 - and exceeded the
output of Ontarios coal plants.
Output from hydroelectric and natural gas facilities was essentially unchanged
from 2011, coming in at 33.8 TWh and 22.2 TWh respectively. Ontarios coalfired units remained at less than three per cent of production.
Total annual electricity consumption stayed virtually flat at 141.3 TWh. Factors
constraining growth include the current economic conditions, the growth in
embedded generation capacity (which reduces demand for electricity from
the bulk power system) and ongoing conservation and demand management
initiatives.

Local electricity delivery charges are changing


The Ontario Energy Board has approved a decrease in delivery charges effective May 1, 2013. For a residential household using an average
of 800 kWh per month, there is a decrease in delivery charges of 0.2% or $0.11. The monthly bill for a General Service < 50kW customer
consuming 2000 kWh per month will decrease by 1.0% or $0.95. The delivery portion includes the recovery of costs to build and maintain
the distribution system as well as pass through costs for the transmission of electricity.

Haldimand County Hydro implemented Time-of-Use rates in September 2011 for residential and general service customers
who use less than 50 kW per month. Charges are calculated based on the time of day that the electricity is used. Please refer
to the chart below as a guideline in shifting your usage to the most economical time period in order to reduce the amount
you are charged for electricity.

Shift from on-peak to off-peak periods when possible to help manage electricity
costs, reduce strain on the electricity system, and help the environment.

Reviewing your bill


Haldimand County Hydro is required to display your electricity charges in a summarized format under headings that have been standardized across the province.
