OESP Scam Warning

Milton Hydro has become aware of a door-to-door scam in the Halton area.

Individuals are going door-to-door claiming to represent of the OESP program.

Residents of the Halton Hills area report receiving calls from someone claiming to be from the “Ontario Rebate and Reward Association,” offering rebates on their electricity bills and asking for access to their homes to verify they are eligible for the rebates.

The OEB wants consumers to know that the OESP application and approval process does not require a home visit, and that companies are not allowed to use or promote the OESP as part of any sales pitch. There are more than 170 agencies across Ontario that are willing to help consumers with the OESP application process for free.

Milton Hydro is reminding customers to never provide any personal information including credit card information over the phone or at the door and to never let anyone that you do not know into your house.

Customers who believe they may be victims of a fraud or theft are asked to report the incident to their local police department.
