The OEB has accepted an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance from Enbridge Gas Inc., a gas distributor, following an inspection into the company’s disconnection-related practices. The inspection found that Enbridge Gas Inc. did not comply with certain regulatory requirements for disconnection notices. This reflects the OEB’s commitment to protecting consumers by ensuring that regulated companies fulfil all of their regulatory requirements regarding disconnection.
The OEB has released an updated variance settlement factor that is to be used by electricity distributors to calculate a one-time credit or charge for consumers who choose to stop purchasing electricity through the Regulated Price Plan. This factor is called the "Final RPP Variance Settlement Factor" and is updated on the OEB website monthly.
The OEB has issued a letter informing all rate-regulated electricity and gas distributors about an adjustment to their July 2021 OEB cost assessment invoices. The letter explains that funds from administrative monetary penalties collected by the OEB in regards to compliance matters have been used to reduce the distributors’ July cost assessment invoices on the expectation that the distributors will promptly supplement their LEAP-EFA budget for 2021 by the same amount. The letter also describes temporary changes to the screening guidelines for LEAP-EFA that are designed to help energy consumers most in need.
