Information about Retail Energy Contracts:

  • If you are approached to sign or renew a electricity contract for your home or small business, it’s important to know who you’re dealing with. Energy company salespeople must wear an ID badge and give you a business card.

    Four things to remember if you are approached to sign an energy contract:

  • Always make sure you get a business card and look at the salesperson’s ID badge first

  • Don’t share personal information (i.e. your electricity bill) unless you are sure you want to sign a contract

  • Carefully read the contract, disclosure statement and price comparison provided by the salesperson

  • The Ontario Energy Board  or Rideau St. Lawrence Utilities do not go door to door
