The OEB is reviewing the consumer protection framework for customers of Unit Sub-Meter Providers (USMPs).

This will involve reviewing the current USMP-related customer service rules to assess the potential alignment with electricity distributor-related customer service rules, having regard to the OEB’s legislative authority and the role of USMPs in the energy sector. The OEB will also consider establishing mechanisms to enhance its ability to monitor the performance of USMPs related to the customer service rules, as well as provide consumers with the support to better understand the USMP sector.
