Multi-Year Incentive Rate Regulation for Natural Gas Utilities

Case number
Natural Gas

As part of the Ontario Energy Board's NGF report issued on March 30, 2005, the Board concluded that it would develop a multi-year incentive regulation plan for setting natural gas utility rates. The Board commenced a consultation process that led to Board staff's Discussion Paper on a potential incentive regulation framework for natural gas utilities. This consultation process is now over. However, the Board held a combined proceeding that determined the multi-year incentive rate mechanisms for Union Gas Limited and Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. (EB-2007-0606 / EB-2007-0615).
