Canadian Niagara Power Inc. has a strong and reliable electricity system, but occasionally we are at the mercy of the Canadian climate. In the winter, heavy snow or ice storms can cause power lines to break, while in the summer and fall, fierce winds, rain and lightning can cause extensive damage that leads to power outages.

Effective September 1, 2011, CNP will disconnect electrical service to rental properties upon move out of a tenant, if a new occupant account has not been established.  This disconnection will be processed automatically if we do not have your signed “Landlord Consent for Service Connection” form on file.
Landlord’s/Property Manager’s wishing to avoid disconnection of electrical service to rental properties need to contact our office to arrange transfer of the electricity service account into their names at or before change of occupancy.
Please note that disconnected services may require an Electrical Safety Authority inspection at the expense of the Landlord/Property Manager.  A reconnection fee will apply once service is restored.  Canadian Niagara Power Inc. assumes no responsibility for any loss or damage to property resulting from the disconnection of electrical service.

  • It will now be easier to track your monthly energy usage
  • During the transition, you may notice a temporary fluctuation in the number of days billed on your invoice
  • This change will happen over a few invoices
