Media Advisory - Ontario Energy Board Coming to Leamington to Hear From Consumers

TORONTO, June 15, 2017 /CNW/ - The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) is bringing its rate review process to Leamington. The province's energy regulator has received a rate application from Hydro One to increase its distribution rates over five years beginning on January 1, 2018.

The amounts requested by Hydro One in its application to the OEB relate to its distribution business and do not reflect any credits or other changes resulting from the Fair Hydro Act, 2017.  Any amounts approved by OEB will not impact the distribution line of the bill of most Hydro One customers, after the Fair Hydro Act credits and changes are applied.

The OEB will carefully review Hydro One's application.  As part of its review, the OEB is holding a community meeting to help consumers:

  • Learn more about Hydro One's costs as described in its rate application;

  • Find out how they can get involved in the OEB's process; and

  • Provide their comments to the OEB about Hydro One's application.

When: Thursday, June 15, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. (Doors open at 6 p.m.)

Where: Leamington Kinsmen Recreation Complex

Media are welcome to attend. 

Consumers are invited to make a five-minute presentation at the meeting by first contacting the OEB at or by calling 416-440-7605 or 1-877-632-2727 (toll-free within Ontario) and quoting file number EB-2017-0049.
