You have choices when buying the energy portion of your electrical energy needs. Ottawa River Power Corporation does not sell electricity but simply delivers the electricity to your home. Therefore ORPC will never come to your door to sell this to you. If you do not purchase your power from a retailer, your power is provided under the Regulated Price Plan set by the Ontario Energy Board. To understand the options before you sign a contract follow this link for more information: Consumer Protection.
