Implementing the Process for Enabling Customers to Opt Out of Time-of-Use Pricing
The government has announced that it intends to introduce customer choice for consumers on the Regulated Price Plan (RPP) who pay time-of-use (TOU) prices. This initiative would allow RPP TOU customers to opt out of TOU pricing in favour of tiered prices starting November 1, 2020.
The Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines has indicated it is looking to the OEB to develop, in consultation with electricity distributors and other stakeholders as appropriate, the rules to implement the customer choice initiative.
The OEB is therefore initiating a consultation to inform the development of amendments to its Standard Supply Service Code and other regulatory instruments as required in order to ensure the timely, efficient and effective implementation of the new opt-out mechanism.
