Ontario Energy Board – COVID-19 Energy Assistance Program for Small Business (CEAP-SB)
CEAP-SB, a Government of Ontario program with rules designed by the OEB, is intended to help small businesses and registered charities that are struggling to pay their energy bills as a result of the COVID-19 emergency. CEAP-SB provides a one time, on-bill credit to eligible small business and registered charity customers to help them catch up on their energy bills and resume regular payments.
As of August 31, 2020, small businesses and registered charities can apply for funding through their electricity and natural gas utilities or unit sub-meter providers (USMPs). Please note that CEAP-SB funding is limited, and utilities and USMPs will process applications in the order in which they are received. Submitting an application for CEAP-SB does not guarantee funding.
Full program details including eligibility criteria, on-bill credit amounts and application processes are available at oeb.ca/CEAP.
