农场

If you own or operate a 农场, here's important information about electricity rates. You'll also find helpful advice on how to recognize stray voltage on your 农场, together with guidance on what you can do if you suspect it's affecting your livestock.

管制价格计划(RPP)

住宅用户, 小型企业, 农场 customers and other low-volume users of electricity (designated consumers) can receive their electricity through the Regulated Price Plan, 哪个提供的利率由 安大略省能源委员会(OEB). You are automatically part of this plan unless you choose to purchase your electricity from an electricity retailer.

安大略省电力退税

11月1日, 2019, the Government of Ontario introduced a  rebate on electricity costs for residential, 农场, 和许多小企业消费者.

将于2021年11月1日生效 安大略省电力退税 (OER) reduces the pre-HST costs on customers’ bills by 17.0%.

Most 农场 customers are eligible to receive the 安大略省电力退税 on their electricity bill. Eligibility to receive the rebate is defined under the Ontario Rebate for Electricity Consumers Act, 2016.

Farm customers may be asked by 真人百家家乐APP下载 to complete a form confirming that they meet one or more of the criteria for rebate eligibility.

农场寄生电压

什么是农场杂散电压?

电气系统, both 农场 systems and the distribution systems of local utilities, are grounded to the earth to ensure safety and reliability. 不可避免地, some current flows through the earth at each point where the electrical system is grounded and a small voltage develops. This voltage is called neutral-to-earth voltage (NEV).

Stray or "tingle" voltage occurs when equipment that is not supposed to be energized picks up voltage from nearby wires or equipment. It can be found at low levels between two contact points where electricity is grounded. Most of the time, stray voltage is not a problem because the levels are generally not felt by humans.

然而, stray voltage may affect livestock animals on 农场s more frequently because of electrically grounded equipment, 比如金属稳定, 喂食器, 牛奶管道或潮湿的混凝土地板. If an animal touches two contact points with different voltage levels, a small electric current will pass through the animal. 一些牲畜, 特别是牛, are so sensitive to these currents that they are bothered by small levels that people would not feel.

The reported symptoms of stray voltage in dairy cows include lowered milk production, reduced water or feed intake and nervous or aggressive behaviour. These same symptoms can be also caused by disease, 营养不良, unsanitary conditions or milking machine defects.

杂散电压的成因?

Stray voltage can originate from sources both on the 农场 and off the 农场:

  • 非农来源 include an electrical distribution system, where some voltage will always exist between the neutral ground system and the earth and the 农场's electric system. The level of this neutral-to-earth voltage may change on a daily or seasonal basis, depending on amount of electricity loaded into the system, environmental conditions and other factors. 
  • 田间来源 包括不良或错误的线路, 不平衡农场系统负载, 不适当的接地, 和有缺陷的设备. Voltages from telephone lines or gas pipelines are other possible sources.

For safety reasons, 真人百家家乐APP下载's neutral system is connected to a 农场's grounding system. Grounding is provided to protect people and animals from shocks.

How are utility contributions to 农场 stray voltage addressed?

如果怀疑有杂散电压, the only way to determine the cause is to have your 农场 tested by a trained expert. 

If a utility is found responsible for contributing to 农场 stray voltage, the utility must take steps to lower its contribution to acceptable levels. The particular solution will depend on the utility's equipment servicing the 农场, the extent of the problem and other technical factors.

Common ways of addressing utility contributions to 农场 stray voltage include installing filtering equipment at the service to the property and installing additional grounding equipment to the utility's neutral conductors.

What to do if you suspect Stray Voltage problems on your 农场?

If you suspect stray voltage problems at your 农场, you should first review 真人百家家乐APP下载's 农场寄生电压 Customer Response Procedure. 如果在审查了这些信息之后, you would like 真人百家家乐APP下载 to investigate if we are contributing to stray voltage problems at your 农场, 请致电 .

除了你的名字, address, mailing address and day-time phone number, we will need information about why you suspect stray voltage from 真人百家家乐APP下载’s system may be affecting your 农场 operations. This information includes the types of animals potentially affected by stray voltage, changes in animal behaviours and any other evidence. 在你打电话后的五个工作日内, you will be contacted by one of our technicians to discuss your concerns and if warranted, to schedule an investigation to see if our system is contributing to stray voltage on your 农场.

For further information on stray voltages at livestock 农场s, visit the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) 网站.
