In keeping with steps we are taking to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of regulatory proceedings, we have posted a revised version of our Rules of Practice and Procedure. The revisions are related to Rules 40-43 dealing with motions to review, and certain administrative updates relating to definitions and general principles of interpretation.
The OEB has accepted an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance from Enbridge Gas Inc., a gas distributor, following an inspection into the company’s disconnection-related practices. The inspection found that Enbridge Gas Inc. did not comply with certain regulatory requirements for disconnection notices. This reflects the OEB’s commitment to protecting consumers by ensuring that regulated companies fulfil all of their regulatory requirements regarding disconnection.
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.
