The Ontario Energy Board commenced a proceeding on its own motion to determine (i) whether it should order new rates for the provision of natural gas, transmission, distribution and storage services to gas-fired generators (and other eligible customers); and (ii) whether to refrain, in whole or part, from exercising its power to regulate the rates charged for the storage of gas in Ontario by considering whether, as a question of fact, the storage of gas in Ontario is subject to competition sufficient to protect the public interest.
