What's New

The OEB has accepted an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance from Festival Hydro Inc. regarding non-compliance with requirements of the Electricity Act, 1998 and the OEB’s Retail Settlement Code. This reflects the importance the OEB places on protecting consumers by ensuring that commodity and global adjustment costs are collected and settled correctly.

The OEB has accepted an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance from Alexian Energy Services Inc. The Assurance responds to non-compliance related to engaging in unit sub-metering without a licence.

The OEB has released the 2018 Yearbooks of Electricity Distributors and Natural Gas Distributors. The Yearbooks provide interested parties and the general public with financial and operational information collected from distributors.

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.
