With the receipt of a written request from the renter, Hydro Ottawa will separate the power supply into an empty building. If the service is separated for more than six months, the Electrical Safety Authority (SSA) may require the service to comply with code requirements in the event of a return to service. We recommend that you call ESA at 1-877-372-7233 for possible electrical contractor work and ESA`s authorisation/inspection fees. Our application form can be used by a landlord, tenant, business, lawyer and property owner/manager. By signing a participation agreement, landlords and property managers can authorize Hydro Ottawa to automatically transfer responsibility for the electricity service from a rental unit when a tenant moves. This ensures that electricity remains in service in the dwelling and that a new tenant is not obliged to request reconnection and pay the associated costs. As of April 1, 2020, all applications for relocation by landlords and property managers will have to be completed via Hydro Ottawa`s online moving form. This secure online form has been specially designed to meet the needs of property owners and managers and is available under hydroottawa.com/moving-landlord. Learn more about Hydro Ottawa`s order and ownership management agreement program. It allows property owners and managers to manage electrical service more efficiently for their rental units and help them and their tenants save time and money.
If Hydro Ottawa receives a collection request, we will transfer the landlord or property manager`s account to the new tenant. The new tenant is responsible for all costs, including the one-time account installation fee of $30 (plus HST). Under this program, account setting and transfer fees are also waived for landlords and property managers. Hydro Ottawa will send an email to the landlord or property manager informing them that a tenant has closed their account and that the service has been transferred to their account.
