OEB Innovation Sandbox Report

A summary of activity from the first 6 months is now available

What's New

The OEB has published the 2019 Quarter 4 prescribed accounting interest rates applicable to the carrying charges of deferral, variance and construction work in progress (CWIP) accounts of natural gas utilities, electricity distributors and other rate-regulated entities.

The OEB has accepted an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance from Wyse Meter Solutions Inc. following an OEB inspection into the company’s information disclosure and billing practices that found that the company was not complying with certain legal and regulatory requirements. This reflects the OEB’s commitment to protecting consumers by ensuring that regulated companies comply with their obligations.

The OEB has accepted an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance from Gerdau Ameristeel Corporation. The Assurance responds to non-compliance related to operation in the wholesale market without a licence.

Here’s how we can help

As Ontario's independent energy regulator, we make decisions and rules to ensure that consumers are treated fairly and that the energy sector is reliable and sustainable. We oversee how energy companies operate to ensure the public interest is served.
