Wataynikaneyap Power LP 2023 Transmission Rates


Wataynikaneyap Power LP is the owner and operator of a new transmission system that is being constructed in northwestern Ontario to reinforce part of the existing transmission system and to connect certain remote First Nations communities to the provincial electricity transmission system.

The new transmission system, consisting of the Line to Pickle Lake and the Remote Connections Lines, is expected to come into service in stages between 2022 and 2024 and the proposed rates reflect this schedule. The Line to Pickle Lake is expected to come into service in August 2022. The initial segments of the Remote Connections Lines are expected to come into service by September 2022, with additional segments expected to come into service in 2023 and the final segments expected to come into service in 2024.

Wataynikaneyap Power LP has applied to the Ontario Energy Board for approval to change its electricity transmission rates and its fixed charge to Hydro One Remote Communities Inc. effective January 1, 2023. If the application is approved as filed, the monthly bill of a typical residential customer in Ontario and a typical general service customer in Ontario would increase by the following amounts:

Residential 750 kWh $0.20 per month
General Service less than 50kW
(2,000 kWh)
$0.51 per month

Any change to the provincial transmission rate will cause a change to the delivery line on all electricity bills for all electricity customers in Ontario – both residential and business.

Wataynikaneyap Power LP has also applied to dispose of the balances in certain deferral and variance accounts. Please review the application for additional information on the requests.
