Ontario Energy Board defers date to eliminate Long Term Load Transfer

    TORONTO, June 10 /CNW/ - Today the Ontario Energy Board (the Board)
issued amendments to the Distribution System Code (DSC) to change the date by
which distributors must eliminate long term load transfer arrangements to June
30, 2014.
    Long term load transfer is a situation in which a customer is within one
distributor's service area but is served by a second distributor.
    Because a distributor's approach to its load transfer arrangements may
evolve over time as it plans for its smart grid development and renewable
energy projects, the Board believes it's desirable to defer the deadline.
    The amendments also require distributors to report annually on their
progress to eliminate load transfer arrangements.

    The Ontario Energy Board regulates the province's electricity and natural
gas sectors in the public interest. It envisions a viable and efficient energy
sector with informed consumers and works toward this vision through regulation
that is effective, fair and transparent. For more information on the Board,
