Unit sub-metering

Section 57(c.1) of the Ontario Energy Board Act, 1998 states that no person is permitted to engage in unit sub-metering without a licence.

A licensee must pay an annual registration fee for every year of its licence. The annual registration fee for a licensed unit sub-meter provider is $800.
