Enbridge Gas Inc. – 2024-2028 Natural Gas Distribution Rates - Phase One

Enbridge Gas Inc.
EB-2022-0200

Enbridge Gas has applied for approval of rates for the sale, distribution, transmission, and storage of gas commencing January 1, 2024. Enbridge Gas has also applied for approval of an incentive rate-making mechanism (IRM) for the years from 2025 to 2028. This is the first cost-based rate application for Enbridge Gas since the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) approved the amalgamation of Enbridge Gas Distribution and Union Gas.

The OEB also sets the prices that natural gas customers pay for the natural gas (the commodity) that they use. Changes to commodity prices are made through the Quarterly Rate Adjustment Mechanism (QRAM) process, which is separate from the 2024 rates application described above.              
               
The QRAM is the process by which the OEB adjusts the natural gas prices to reflect changes in natural gas market prices. The OEB does not allow Enbridge Gas to earn a profit on the sale of natural gas, regardless of market fluctuations in price.

Submit a letter of comment

You can submit a letter of comment that will be considered by the panel deciding the application. Unless the notice states otherwise, your letter of comment will be accepted until the record of the proceeding is closed (which usually occurs with the filing of the applicant’s final reply argument). However, you are encouraged to submit your letter as early in the process as you can. Depending on timing of receipt of letters of comment, the applicant will typically provide a respond to the issues raised in those letters. Your letter will be provided directly to the panel of Commissioners who will be deciding whether the application is approved. The panel will consider your comments in reaching their decision. The panel will only be able to consider comments which relate to issues which are within the authority of the OEB and relevant to the issues being considered by the panel.

More about commenting and privacy
All letters of comment sent to the OEB are placed on the public record. This means the letters will be placed on our website. Before the letter of comment is placed on the public record, personal contact information contained in the address, phone number, and email address fields of this form is removed. The individual's name and the content of the letter will become part of the public record.

If you would like a response from the applicant, please send a copy of your letter directly to the applicant, including your personal contact information. The OEB removes your personal contact information from your letter for privacy reasons before it is posted to our website.
