Ontario Energy Board Coming to Hawkesbury to Hear from Consumers

TORONTO, Sept. 15, 2017 /CNW/ - The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) is bringing its rate review process to Hawkesbury. The province's energy regulator has received an application from Hydro Hawkesbury to increase its electricity distribution rates by $0.15 per month. This application may impact customer bills for the next five years, starting January 1, 2018.

The amounts requested by Hydro Hawkesbury 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.  

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

  • Learn more about Hydro Hawkesbury's costs as described in its rate application
  • Find out how they can get involved in the OEB's process
  • Provide their comments to the OEB about Hydro Hawkesbury's application


Monday, September 18, 2017 from 7 – 9 p.m. (Doors open at 6:30 p.m.)


Robert Hartley Sports Complex
425 Cartier Blvd., Hawkesbury


Media are welcome to attend. 

Consumers are invited to make a five-minute presentation at the meeting by first contacting the OEB at registrar@oeb.ca or by calling 416-440-7605 or 1-877-632-2727 (toll-free within Ontario) and quoting file number EB-2017-0048.
