We are the independent regulator of Ontario’s electricity and natural gas sectors.

We protect the interests of consumers and deliver public value that contributes to Ontario’s economic, social and environmental development.

What's New

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 updated Chapter 3 of the Filing Requirements for 2025 rate applications, adding references to Non-Wires Solutions Guidelines in the sections relating to the Lost Revenue Adjustment Mechanism Variance Account and the Incremental Capital Module.

The OEB has updated its Handbook to Electricity Distributor and Transmitter Consolidations: Rate-making Considerations and Filing Requirements for Consolidation Applications. The 2024 Handbook reflects updates on OEB policies and filing requirements applicable to consolidations as well as rate-making considerations, accounting and other matters related to consolidating utilities.

Application of these policies will create a more predictable regulatory environment for applicants that are considering consolidation, thereby facilitating planning and decision-making, while assisting applicants in determining the value of consolidation transactions.
