Rate Design for Commercial and Industrial Customers

Details

The nature of electricity distribution has been changing for the past decade and will continue to change. Distribution companies have acted as a delivery route for power from the grid to consumers. In the future they will act more as a service platform offering services such as balancing, power quality, storage, and redistributing power from users connected to their systems. The rate design adopted by the OEB for distributors should position the companies for this future by linking the rate design to the cost drivers and making sure that customers value and pay their fair share for service.
