TORONTO, June 22 /CNW/ - Today the Ontario Energy Board (the Board)
issued a Decision on a Motion by Thunder Bay Hydro Electricity Distribution
Inc.(TB Hydro) relating to errors in TB Hydro's 2006 Distribution Rates filing
and the related Rate Orders for 2006 and 2007.
TB Hydro had requested a rate rider effective November 1, 2007 allowing
retroactive revenue recoveries totalling $650,000. TB Hydro indicated this
would result in a total bill impact for a typical residential customer of 3%
on their monthly bill. The Board has determined that retroactive revenue
recoveries totalling approximately $309,000 will be allowed, effective August
The Board has directed TB Hydro to file with the Board proposed rates
incorporating the Board's findings within 7 days of this Decision.
