The OEB is initiating a comprehensive policy review of miscellaneous rates and charges applied by electricity distributors for specific activities or services they provide to their customers.
The first phase of the review of miscellaneous rates and charges will include:
a) review of wireline pole attachments and the methodology used for determining charges, including the appropriate treatment of any revenues that carriers may receive from third parties.
b) review of the other miscellaneous rates and charges including the methodology for setting the charges, the appropriate level of standardization across the province and mechanisms for keeping the charges up to date.
Subsequent phases will address the retail service charges and other regulated charges.
OEB staff sent a list of key issues to the working group which included a description and question prepared by OEB staff and Nordicity related to each issue. OEB staff requested that the working group members collaborate to provide their feedback and comments on each key issue.
